Do Looks Matter . . . ?
For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . . .
You go to a networking event. There’s a great looking guy there. He seems to have the attention of the entire room. You find out that he’s the CEO of a multi-national corporation.
You meet the CEO and swap stories in a conversation. He seems truly interested in what you have to say. His approach is positive, people centered, and strongly biased toward high values.
Later, you mention Mr. Good Looking to a friend, who’s never had a problem in the looks department. Your friend sees the CEO in an entirely different light. “That guy? I used to work with him. He got everywhere by looking good and shaking hands. He couldn’t connect the dots if they were numbered. He just smiles and people do his work for him. If I looked like he does, I’d be the powerful CEO. He’d be working for me!”
How do you respond?
