It's a good idea to do the right thing, right? But when is the "right thing" really an excuse for paralyzing perfectionism, learned helplessness and spite?
When we subscribe to virtues so much that we don't question them, they become sacred cows. And sacred cows are wasteful and dangerous because they hide things. Virtue is especially good at hiding vice.
On Friday, January 18, join me at Duke University for a provocative look at the unintended consequences of fairness, excellence and collaboration. You'll discover the dark side of some of your best intentions. And you'll begin to spot and eliminate the wasteful, career-limiting behaviors that masquerade as virtues at work.
Where: Geneen Auditorium, The Fuqua School of Business, Duke University
When: 7:00 - 7:45 pm, Friday, January 18
What: Fuqua's Career Management Center presents: The Unintended Consequences of Fairness, Excellence and Collaboration
Who: Jake Breeden, author of Tipping Sacred Cows
Hope you can make it!
