If you haven’t encountered it already in your career, you will do at some point…I promise you.
There will be times when your personal values will take priority over ‘being right’ or ‘proving him/her wrong’, and you’ll speak transparently in a timely manner, and ultimately, do the right thing. Not the right thing just for you, but for the wider community – and by community, I mean your organisation, the people within it, and even (especially) for those folk you don’t particularly care for, want to be around, but have to!
Watch this short clip and observe the wonderful integrity demonstrated by tennis player Jack Sock in his game with Lleyton Hewitt. It’s a real trust building demonstration that perhaps you might want to remember for when you have a dilemma about ‘being right’ or ‘doing the right thing’.
