Develop Character

Character – Activity: Develop Character

Imagine for a moment that you are an employer, and describe your ideal employee. Then compare your description to the personal qualities that have been identified by SCANS as what employers are looking for.

  • Responsibility
  • Self-Esteem
  • Sociability
  • Self-Management
  • Integrity/Honesty

What are the qualities you are looking for in a relationship? Likely many of those qualities are on these lists as well.
