A simple test to see if you are doing the right work for you:

* Do you feel proud about the company you work for and the people you work with?
* Do people you work with express their respect for what you do and how you do it?
* What do your friends and family think about the products and services you make and sell?
* Would you encourage your children to work for your company?
* Would you encourage them to do your job?

Pride builds with the following practices:
* Clarify what matters and why
* Celebrate the steps as much as the results
* Walk the talk
* Draw on values and attitudes that matter to your people
* Have a simple and compelling mission or goal
* Hire, promote and reward those that live the values and the goal

Pride breaks with:
* Break up a winning team
* Ignore local initiatives
* Cut costs in all the wrong places
* Insist on inflexible rules
* Try to 'buy' pride

''People will not criticize you for a decision you take but for the way you took that decision''
