I believe this - with all my heart and sole - professionals are only human - but because they are professionals they MUST be held to a higher standard....it is the nature of the position.
A director should not send out an e-mail to their staff insinuating, implying or announcing preferential treatment of their staff over another person's during a collaborative project.
A consultant - who tauts theme selves as a professional, should not forward another person's e-mail to anyone, without permission.
A director should not withhold information from staff because it will be tough conversation - and think they will inform them when they return from a vacation even if it means the staff person would find out from an outside party.
A clergyman should not use a congregant as a pawn in a political decision.
All in one week -- I'm disappointed! Disappointment To error is human - but professionalism comes with expectations and responsibility!
