Suppose you know in your heart that what you believe is right, and others disagree.
If you are in control, do you charge on ahead and act upon your beliefs?
Do you frame this as merely a communication problem, or is it something bigger?
What is your responsibility to…
- …those who agree with you?
- …those who disagree with you?
- …those who are impacted most by what happens next?
How do your answers to these questions change if you are not the one in control?
How do your answers to these questions change if you are in the minority?
These questions have bounced around in my head since last week, and not just in relation to the U.S. election. It bothers me a lot that I can’t answer my own questions with any certainty right now.
