German to English translations [PRO] Bus/Financial - Human Resources / letter of reference
German term or phrase:integrativer Charakter
"Sein in jeder Hinsicht ++integrativer Charakter++, seine Vertrauenswürdigkeit und sein Einfühlungsvermögen gegenüber Mitarbeitern ermöglichen es ihm zu motivieren und damit den Erfolg der an ihn gestellten Ziele sicherzustellen"
Am not quite sure what they mean here. Thanks in advance.
Explanation: what it means is that he was a force of integration, not division
maybe 'inclusive personality' would work - BTW, the German sounds strange, too! It may already have been translated

thanks, "inclusive it is"
Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Teresa, the entire piece is a veritable pot-pourri of superlatives! There must be a data base somewhere that contains building blocks for this kind of drivel.
Asker: but in this case, the letter of reference is for a non-German working in Africa-there is no indication that we should be "reading between the lines"

character of integrity
Explanation: ther may well be a better way of phrasing this though! do not forget that a german zeugnis is not allowed to contain anything negative by law here - so these superlatives should be taken with a pinch of salt
