Mortgage and Lending with Progressive Mortgage



Recently, more than 43,000 executives were asked to list the most important virtues they look for in a key staff member. Their number one answer might surprise you. They were asked, "What separates an exceptional employee from an average one?" What virtues would they seek and encourage in employees and in themselves to help their companies succeed?"

The most common answer they gave was "ethics."  An upright person will be blessed and surrounded with favor. In corporate boardrooms across America, there's a growing appreciation of that truth.

My question for members of ARC is when you are head hunting a new employee, do you look for more than a book of business?

Ethics is #1, but then at a close second is a big smile and a great sense of humor, because the laughs keep you in business!
