Greg McCann Speaks

2007Present (7 years) Orlando, Florida Area

Here is a review of my recent book: Who Do You Think You Are? Aligning Your Character and Reputation.

Once upon a time, people were encouraged to do things to "build strong character" and Americans looked up to people whose reputations reflected their inner strength and integrity. In an era when one can become world-famous just for being rich and annoying, corporate ruthlessness is deified, competence in the workplace takes a back-seat to the ability to CYA, and the most beloved athletes turn out to be closet sex addicts or performance drug users, that idea of building character seems quaint.

In this book, author Greg McCann points out that not only are character and integrity not outmoded, but it's in your best interests to make sure your self-perception and reputation are aligned--and to make sure you are what we once called a person of good character.

Even better, McCann points out that we're not stuck with the character we now exhibit. Just as we can exercise and build a healthier body, we can actually build a stronger character, and he provides a detailed action plan to help us carry this out.

This is a short book, but it's filled with good information and solid advice, and not a word is wasted. Chapters explain what character is, why character is important, how to assess it and how to improve it. McCann also gives examples with "character cases" that drive home his points, and each section ends with suggested activities one can do to put the information into practice.

If you're just entering the workforce, making a job change, or just wondering why your career is stalled, it will be well worth the few dollars and few hours you'll spend on this book. And I think we can all benefit from taking a good look at our character.

    When you walk into an interview, you enter a competition with others whose skills, credentials and experiences are similar to yours. So how do you distinguish yourself? Since many of the best employers hire on character and develop skills, how your character measures up may well determine whether you get the job. In Who Do You Think You Are? Greg McCann explains how your character can enhance or derail your career, as well as your personal life, romances and friendships.
