I do not believe in the absolute truths applicable to all organizations and to all people.
Each company and each professional has its principles, its values and its own style. These evolve with experience and learning from mistakes.
The waterlily flower is not always shown on the point where its roots are located. On the contrary, the more flexible and long its stem is, the farther from its root it can be shown.
Similarly, experienced professionals should be able to adapt sometimes their behavior to the requirements of the situations they face, of the environment and their teams. At the same time, they should not lose contact with their roots, with their own principles and values.
Because I do believe that we are happier and better professionals when, in the long run, we act according to who we are and what we think.
