Does this seem silly or self-indulgent?
Examples of conflicts clients take on:
- Business plateaus
- Career changes or stalls
- Employee attendance or performance
- Fear of managing “others” (e.g., women, transgender women)
- Financial hardship
- Sexual harassment
- Unlawful discrimination
Casey owns a small business. While interviewing for a recent project, one of the two project managers alleged another lead candidate had sexually assaulted her while they were dating. It happened several years earlier, but she was unsure she could work effectively with the other candidate. Casey respected both of them and wanted to be fair to both, but he wasn’t sure how. Was he a bad person for still wanting to hire the accused assailant? Was he supposed to take some sort of action? How could he know who to believe? Did it even matter, since the incident happened so long ago?
