As the head of people and culture in a large financial institution, you’ve been given information by an individual regarding your behaviour. Although no rules have been broken, it has forced you to self-reflect on how well you’re doing your job.
As part of your role in driving a strong speak up culture, being open about this information could be a good opportunity to demonstrate psychological safety within the organisation and own up to your shortcomings, but it could be to your detriment and possibly to your career.
What would you do?
- What ethical considerations would you give to your decision-making?
We encourage you to post your answers in the comments so we can create a healthy discussion, with the aim of learning from our peers, becoming aware of differing perspectives and challenging our own biases.
We need more dilemmas please! If you would like to submit an ethical dilemma to feature in an upcoming weekly challenge please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
