In its book “Act like a CEO”, D.A. Benton (A Queen that thinks as a King) gives 1 of the 10 rules of how thinking like a King.
- Be Your self, unless you are a jerk
Integrity is important; how you do your work is more important that what your work is.
D.A. Benton comments to us that at moments of true problem it is where the character of a true Director is observed, She says that the way you lose is a good test of character.
So when you have a setback, a crisis or failure, don’t be a jerk:
· Don’t be overly convinced of your own importance
· Don’t think you are the exception to the rule in doing whatever you feel like.
· Don’t act only to please you.
· Don’t break your word.
· Don’t be dishonest.
· Don’t be mean or nasty.
· Don’t kick people in the face anywhere along the way.
· Don’t yell and scream.
· Don’t embarrass other.
· Don’t turn to your associate into road kill when the going gets tough.
· Don’t be arrogant, no matter how much of a right you think you have to be arrogant.
· Don’t get good at being bad.
This is only the first principle, and as we can observe, is personal, everything is related to the individual and its character, its motivation and intention and its capacity to auto control it self.
