Leroy Jethro Gibbs was famous for quoting Rule Number 6, "Never say you're sorry, it's a sign of weakness." On the surface, one can hear the ring of truth in that rule. For it has happened, hasn't it? We have apologized for something and we knew immediately, as soon as the words escape, it was a mistake. At that moment we knew we had put ourselves at a social disadvantage. If we were very fortunate the other person might have said, "No, no, no! Not at all, don't worry about it.!" Unfortunately, and especially in a tough busineess setting, a super competitive workplace, a very public leadership opportunity, the reply is often, awkward silence.

We're So Sorry.....

It has been a long-held belief that cross cultural differences play
a direct role in personality traits.
Are there more “D’s” for instance, in U.S. cultures, more S’s in Asian cultures, more “I’s” in the Hispanic Cultures, etc.? The popular DISC instrument is used in name here, but it could be any number of other personality / behavioral trait measuring assessments. New research however, has offered new data that suggests we look again. Cultural differences do play a role in personality traits, therefore, must be considered in any reliable personality assessment construct / training choice.
