We all experience trauma at some point in our lives, both in our personal and professional lives. We tend to think about trauma mostly in relation to our personal lives, but many traumatic experiences can transpire in our workplace, such as being intimidated, demoted or retrenched. We often find that, especially when we have a heavy workload, we just soldier on without acknowledging the consequences of not dealing with the pain.

The voices behind our beliefs

We are often quite unaware of how our belief systems are influenced by various external factors, and how those beliefs may impact on our decisions and actions. Not interrogating information that we are being fed on a daily basis could quite easily lead to a skewed view of reality, which may lead to inappropriate decisions or actions. Reflecting on how we have come to our conclusions should be standard practice for leaders.

The Whistle Blower’s Achilles Heel

The journey of a whistle blower is never an easy one. Many who make the noble decision to blow the whistle, do not fully recover once they have walked through the battle ground. Landing on your feet should be a goal every whistle blower aims for as an ultimate end state. Following a set of principles may help the individual find their way to that desired end state.

The true depth of accountability

Accountability has for the longest of times been touted as one of the key pillars of governance, for very good reasons. Can one talk about governance without accountability? Especially when you consider the fact that we are living in a world where complexity is not only the order of the day, but the degree of complexity is also constantly increasing?
