You Can't Teach Ethics or Integrity

A buddy of mine applying for a job filled out an employment test. It showed that he was lacking in a few areas such as organizational skills and dealing with confrontation.

As he was lamenting his performance on the test, he almost neglected to tell where he scored high: integrity and ethics. He was off-the-chart great in those areas.

I'd rather have a high-integrity but organizationally challenged person representing my company than one who is a genius in prioritizing yet can't be trusted.

You can teach and improve skills but you can't teach honestly.
