As Opposed to What, Exactly?
Updated: Jan 22, 2021
From a position description ... listed under Desired Personal Characteristics: "Strong work ethic with a high degree of energy."
As opposed to what, exactly?
"We're looking for someone with a lousy work ethic?"
"We seek a leader with low energy??"
Whether crafting strategy or composing position descriptions, if the opposite of what you're saying is invalid, it doesn't deserve to be included in the document. Eliminate the words altogether. They add nothing other than taking up space.
