COMMENTARY: Suitability Versus Capability

http://media.blubrry.com/whatwillmatter/whatwillmatter.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/CC-080212SuitabilityVsCapability.mp3

A critical maxim of management is: “Suitability is as important as capability.” Capability asks, “Can they do the job?” Suitability asks, “Are they right for the job?” If the job isn’t a good fit, it’s not a good job. Yes, an employee has to have (or be able to readily acquire) the skills and knowledge required for excellent job performance, … Read More

http://media.blubrry.com/whatwillmatter/whatwillmatter.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/01/CC-012813-PressureToCheat.mp3

What’s causing the growing hole in our moral ozone? Why are cheating and lying so common in schools, on the sports field, and in business and politics? Apparently it’s a thing called pressure. Kids are under pressure to get into college, athletes and coaches are under pressure to win, and, according to a survey by the American Management Association, the … Read More The post COMMENTARY 973.4: The Pressure to Cheat appeared first on What Will Matter.

COMMENTARY 965.1: Keeping Christmas

Whether you are a Christian or not, Henry Van Dyke‘s concept of “Keeping Christmas,” written in 1905, is worth reading and following: It is a good thing to observe Christmas day.
