Look for 3 things in a person – intelligence, energy and integrity. If they don’t have the last one, don’t even bother with the first two. – Warren Buffet
Two leaders were in the news this week. One for giving us hope, and the other despair.
Pope Francis captivated America by his gestures of kindness.
Volkswagen’s CEO Martin Winterkorn led the effort to rig 11 million cars worldwide so that pollution controls would work only when regulators were testing them. The rest of the time, on the road in regular use, a “defeat device” was engaged, and those same cars emitted up to 40 times as many smog-forming nitrogen oxides.
Talk to your children about:
- Choices people make as it relates to integrity
- The cost associated to people believing in you again
- The value of a reputation
- Experiences they can relate to, such as test taking, and students demonstrating acts of kindness
Have a great week!
