The bigger the person...

As I've gotten to meet some great people throughout the years, I've found that the very best of the bunch--those real top men and women at their corporations--were also the most gracious.

Those "big people" were the ones who sent hand-written notes or emails on the weekend or who called with advice or who reached out to help.

Their smaller counterparts quite often were focused on their favorite subject: themselves.

It's easy to assume a high-level person is cold or selfish, that's how our society pigeonholes successful people. But take a closer look and you'll very often see someone who is sensitive, caring, honest and sincere. And it makes sense, after all, because those are the very traits that brought them success--who wouldn't want to see that kind of person do well?
