When I first read this strength, I thought to myself, this is a something a struggle with because I thought it was all about setting routines/habits and sticking to them. But Tom Rath does not discuss consistency here with respect to time management or the habits you have.โฃ

He discusses consistency based on how you treat people.โฃ

โฃ

Do you treat people in the same way?โฃ

Or are you one of those who canโ€™t greet a Junior staff but will greet senior staff? โฃ

According to Tom Rath, Consistency is a powerful strength that emphasizes fairness and treating people equally, regardless of their station in life. It involves maintaining a steadfast commitment to fairness and upholding consistent standards for everyone.โฃ
