Yesterday I read a wonderful blog on the Lead Change Group’s website, written by Deborah Costello, entitledDiscriminating Leadership. In her blog she states: “The cure for discrimination is not apathy. “I don’t care. Whatever.” can’t be the response to personal revelation. Instead we must reply in ways that lift up and demonstrate understanding. Maybe our answer can be as simple as “OK,” or “Thank you for letting me to know you more completely.” In essence we need to say, “I see you…all of you.”
Her blog struck a very strong cord with me, and I would like to share some additional thoughts from a leadership perspective. Read Georgia Fieste’s full post here.
