As the new year starts and we put energy into achieving our goals, we need to quarantine some energy for integrity checks. In the rush and enthusiasm to move forward, sometimes we forget all the aspects of our behaviour for which we can be held to account.
We often feel that if our work has progressed, it is all OK. All OK at the moment. But what if we were held to account for the ‘bright and shiny’ new work 5 or even 10 or 15 years later? What would the moral compass of that time find fault with? And would we have to explain ourselves in retrospect, with a whole new moral compass. Being a public officer has this potential.
We may have an ethical dilemma of which we are not even aware. Are you monitoring and what can you do to support yourself, your colleagues and possibly your staff?
