Get Your Head Out of the Sand

Sometimes a prospect or even a client will mention something, or say something in passing that sets off an alarm in your head, or even makes you outright uncomfortable. It may be a racist or sexist remark, an off-color joke, or a request that you do something unethical, or simply something that would violate your personal moral or ethical code. How you choose to respond is up to you, but choose to respond.

Don’t bury your head in the sand and pretend it didn’t happen, or that you didn’t hear it. You can choose to address it later one-on-one or in a different setting. Those are choices. By ignoring it altogether however, you’re giving your silent consent or approval. Consider what happened, choose your course and follow it. Once you know something you’re responsible for your response. No response is a response. Wouldn’t you rather choose something you can live with?

  1. 🙂 I gave you smile because I love your post. I really do. It actually makes sense. We have the choice, but sometimes we just end up in the wrong one. And we can’t blame anyone for it. We chose it. That’s why, we’re responsible for it.
