I am a business coach and I will use the powerful questions and scorecard in this book in my coaching starting tomorrow!
It is filled with real-life stories that are moving. It also offers practical ways to evaluate and teach yourself and those around you about moral character strengths, performance character strengths, how to tell the difference and why that's important.
Sadly, most folks dismiss the discussion of moral values as too idealistic and unrealistic, despite the overwhelming evidence that they are the only enduring legacy anyone ever leaves. Most of us cannot recognize that every daily difficulty is an opportunity to build something of value in our lives. Most of us have no clue that our character really is our destiny.
This book should be required reading for every member of Congress, every chief executive officer of a business and every parent.
Moral leadership is the strongest kind of all, but the one most missing in our political and business arenas. Teaching moral character to children is the most important parental job, yet the most neglected.
Building one's own character is the key to life fulfillment, yet most of us seek happiness everywhere else first.
This book is for everyone of us in life who is struggling with great life and death challenges. Really, who isn't?
But, there is a strongly worded message in Chapter 10, page 216. It comes from a sign on the hospital door of a seriously wounded Navy SEAL and echos the message of this book.
The sign on the door reads:
"Don't feel sorry for me. The wounds I received I got in a job I love, doing it for people I love, supporting the freedom of a country I deeply love. I am incredibly tough. I promise to fully recover. This hospital room is a place of fun, optimism and instense and rapid re-growth. If you are not prepared for that, GO ELSEWHERE."
This book is a place where moral character strengths count. If you can't handle it, DON'T READ IT.
