Short Cuts:
On the SpotWhat is the one personality trait you most like to see in other people?

“Flexibility. When someone is flexible and has an open mind, it allows for continued and meaningful cooperation. Even if that person does not agree with your point of view, a flexible approach permits a much better atmosphere to develop.”
Allyson Talbert, CMP

“I like to see a sense of responsibility in those I deal with. Knowing that others are responsible and can be trusted to carry out tasks makes my job very much easier. I hold truthfulness dear, too. My peace of mind is greatly enhanced if I can count on these two basic traits.”
Thelma J. Pollom
Meeting Planner

“I definitely value responsiveness. When I place a telephone call, I like to see it returned within what I consider a reasonable length of time. I do not do a great deal of my planning face to face, so the returned call acts as my first impression. When I am potentially offering a hotel business, I think it is only polite for them to get back to me sooner rather than later.”
Bonnie Schwartz
Special Events Manager
