Compartiendo una experiencia extraña de mis años de estudiante en Manchester, Inglaterra, durante la década de 1970. Acababa de llegar en Inglaterra desde la India, y fue en busca de un alojamiento, básicamente una habitación para alquilar. Yo siempre solía llamar a los terratenientes ingleses por phnoe primero, para asegurarse de que la habitación estaba disponible, y luego visitar esas direcciones, ubicadas kilómetros de distancia, al tomar el autobús o un tren. A mi llegada, siempre me dijeron que, o bien no había espacio para nada o que la habitación estaba alquilado. Después de una docena de tales experiencias frustrantes, se hizo evidente para mí que la habitación estaba siempre disponible - pero los terratenientes ingleses y patronas eran reacios a alquilar a alguien como yo, un indio o una persona no blanca. Curiosamente, la habitación estaba siempre disponible para mi voz en el teléfono, porque mi voz no podía revelar, ya sea mi color de piel, o de mi carrera o mi origen nacional. El misterio se disipó por lo tanto, y sin embargo, esa comprensión fue sin duda un duro despertar para el color verdadero de la sociedad Inglés. Fue mi primer encuentro con los prejuicios y la discriminación, y el momento más impactante que destruye la inocencia por completo - especialmente después de venir de una cultura noble y la mejor educación que se enorgullece de la igualdad. Yo siempre seguiré siendo agradecidos a inglaterra para la mejor educación que he recibido durante mi doctorado y el máster, tanto como por ejemplo la exposición hacia el lado oscuro del mundo real. Años más tarde, después de llegar a Estados Unidos, me di cuenta de que Estados Unidos es un nuevo mundo maravilloso conjunto que da la bienvenida a todos, y trata a todos con respeto y dignidad que merecen. Dios bendiga a América!

Rate it:
Comprehensive talkers are apt to be tiresome when we are not athirst for information; but, to be quite fair, we must admit that superior reticence is a good deal due to lack of matter. Speech is often barren, but silence also does not necessarily brood over a full nest. Your still fowl, blinking at you without remark, may all the while be sitting on one addled nest-egg; and, when it takes to cackling, will have nothing to announce but that addled delusion.
– George Eliot

Compromise is usually bad. It should be a last resort. If two departments or divisions have a problem they can't solve and it comes up to you, listen to both sides and then pick one or the other. This places solid accountability on the winner to make it work. Condition your people to avoid compromise.
