Kesetiaan dan beda pendapat

February 21, 09

Hi IE-ers,

Kebetulan saat surfing saya menemukan quote dari Jendral Collin Powel berikut.
Isinya tentang hubungan antara loyalty dan disagreement. Cukup menarik menurut saya.
Meski latar belakang beliau tentara, sepertinya prinsip ini tak hanya cocok buat sistem ketentaraan.
Organisasi apapun (bahkan keluarga) selayaknya mempertimbangkan prinsip ini.

Bagaimana pendapat anda?

When we are debating an issue, loyalty means giving me your honest opinion, whether you think I’ll like it or not. Disagreement, at this stage, stimulates me.

But once a decision has been made, the debate ends. From that point on, loyalty means executing the decision as if it were your own.
