Wonderful article from Sally Krawcheck on the choices you face: be mediocre and safe or be frank and fearless – and take your chances. She clearly succeeded.
Sally clearly understood how our amygdala and The Almond Effect (Amygdala is greek for almond) can derail us from doing what we know is intellectually, professionally, ethically and morally right – to give the honest and best advice possible.
But how often does our fear of political ramifications stop us from being the professionals we are? Is that what you want your epitaph to be? That you were ‘Afraid to speak up’.
