Number Two: Your interest level. If you are interested in improving yourself and others, you are probably a good prospect. Sometimes people can fake their interest, but we have enough members who will be a capable to judge of whether you are merely pretending.
Number Three: Your responses. Response tells us a lot about someone’s integrity, character and skills. A person’s responses are good indications of his or her character. Our attitudes reflect our inner selves, so even if we can fool others for a while, eventually, our true selves will emerge.
Number Four: Your results. The name of the game is results. How else can we effectively judge an individual’s performance? The final judge must be results. So share yours!
