  • Look for transparency. Sometimes the tendency is for employees to hide, withdraw, stonewall, or put on the mask to avoid tough situations or conflict. And that mask hides who they truly are in challenging, customer-facing situations requiring quick thinking. 
  • Look for resilience and flexibility. You want to surround yourself with people who are flexible during change and will jump on every opportunity to help during a transition.
