Taking that leap from being a parent to several leadership roles in the Boy Scouts of America has been very rewarding....and at some times very challenging...
As a Scout Leader, especially as a Commissioner in the City of Philadelphia, my duty is to ensure all units succeed, which means to ABL (Always Be Learning), and in real estate the ABC....if you have seen the movie...
We all face challenges in real estate, and...there is always a solution to every challenge we face, but here is the question, "Do you do the right thing all the time?" A Scout is Trustworthy.
How many times have you thrown your hands up in the air, pulled out your hair (maybe that explains my follicly challenged scalp), but in the long run, remained polite and calm? A Scout is Cheerful.
Ohhh....and that ridiculous call that comes into the office, sure we can be rude, are we? A Scout is Courteous and Kind.
Now this is one of my pet peeves...cleanliness....oh that BO....what about the words that come from our hearts and mind through our mouths? A Scout is Clean.
In today's current events...tolerance is the buzzword, but it goes both ways. How about we all respect each other as roommates on this big blue ball flying through space at a million miles per second? A Scout is Reverent.
That call we receive from someone...anyone...or that slightly irritating agent, should we return that call, or let them fall to the wayside? A Scout is Helpful.
Do we sugarcoat the truth, overprice a property because of fear of losing the listing, not want to "insult" a home-owner about the condition of their house? How about being honest with some buyers about what they can afford, and not afford? A Scout is Brave.
Do you have a backroom deal with another agent, or are you looking out for the interests of your client? A Scout is Obedient.
Here are some great words to live by...regardless of our stations in life:
A Scout is Trustworthy, Loyal, Helpful, Friendly, Courteous, Kind, Obedient, Cheerful, Thrifty, Brave, Clean, and Reverent.
....and to continue...we must always be in the process of improving ourselves...
"Be your Best, give your Best, because those we serve deserve our Best...Attitude Reflects Leadership!!!"
