    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 successes. As the saying goes, "A rising tide lifts all boats...".

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

    With mandated standardized testing, aren't we turning out good hires?

    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:
    and 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!

    Honesty didn't make the top 7 list. Does loyalty come before honesty? Either honesty is considered ancillary to one of the other traits or it isn't considered important in today's business plan.
