Join Fred Kofman for an in-depth discussion in this video Fred and John: Moving from victim to player, part of Powerless to Powerful: Taking Control.
- Let's see how John and I discuss…changing from a victim perspective to being a player.…What would you like to do, what would closure me,…when you say, "I want to resolve this…"issue so it's not alive anymore,"…because there are sick people out there.…So we can't prevent that,…and there are sick systems out there.…So, injustice is kind of like hurricanes.…They hurt a lot of people, but it's there.…
So aspiring to not have it is a good thing,…but I'd like to just negotiate,…what can we do, because I wish I could say,…well, it's worth it for a world without injustice,…but that's going to take too long.…We need something a little more immediate.…- I would have handled it better if I was better equipped.…You know?…With the proper resources and response to those scenarios,…because as an employee, and you have person…that is two, three layers above you…acting in this manner, it puts you…in a very difficult place,…in how you respond.…
- You're stealing my line.…I don't know if I'll able to help you very much,…because you're already saying it.…
