CORE VALUE OF EXCELLENCE:
What are you “EXCELLENT” at? It’s not a trick question because you may be excellent at something. Before we look at the definition of excellence and decide what it is you are excellent at, let’s look at what I call “Seven Ingredients of Excellency.” They are (not necessarily in order):
7) Hard Work
Granted there may be more than seven, but for the sake of making me feel good, let's focus on these seven. For time and space sake allow me to give a definition of each of the seven then we’ll make a date to address EXCELLENCE at the 2013 IAAI InternationalTraining Conference at the Chaplain’s Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday, May 7.
1. DEPENDABILITY: Able to be depended on; reliable; trustworthy
2. HONESTY: The quality or condition of being honest; integrity; truthfulness; sincerity
3. MOVTIVES: An emotion, desire, physiological need or similar impulse that acts.
4. PATIENCE: The capacity, quality or fact of being patient; tolerance
5. PRESSURE: The condition of being pressed. The application of continuous force by one body on another.
6. PRODUCTIVITY: The quality of being productive.
7. HARD WORK: A direct relationship to efficiency, quality and intelligence.
EXCELLENCE: The quality of being excellent; state of possessing good qualities in an eminent degree; exalted merit; superiority in virtue.
Now … in light of the above allow me to ask again, What are you excellent at? Think about it, contemplate on it and let me know. See you in May.
