That's exactly the type of company I'm looking to work for when I
return back to the States. I love how they applaud even competitor's

And it's been said that college graduates can't find jobs. Are
colleges graduates in America, bad hires?With mandated standardized

Hi, Casual Observer - I am working with the author David Williams, and he's
having trouble logging in right now to respond - but yes, honesty is inherent in
this list as an element of trust - without honesty there can be no lasting
trust, but I'm sure David will have more to say about that as well, when he
can. Also - for all readers- to be very clear, David is wanting to
post the link to the HBR article this column is based on as the original source
of this piece. Here is that link:http://bit.ly/L73Xxdand as you can
see ,the piece is stirring up some animated dialog on HBR. Feel free to comment
- here or there- and both authors, David Williams, and Mary Michelle
Scott, Fishbowl President, will do their best to jump in and respond. Loving the great discussion! Cheryl Conner
