Moral compass

If you have a moral compass, and you stay with it, people will always gravitate towards you

Carol Alt

Moral compass is used in reference to a person’s ability to judge what is right and wrong and act accordingly. And the moral compass distinguishes human beings from animals, as mentioned in the Al-Quran, unlike animals, men are given brain to enable them to differentiate between right and wrong.

Allyship at the workplace

This is something new to me. Basically, Melinda Epler stresses the way forward to build a better team, in which the team members support each other. I agree with her, it is more essential to create allies in an organisation rather than competitors. Competition will drive employees to be more self-centred and for allies, on the other hand, what matters is contribution.

A spotlight stealer

I got this term from my son. He was telling me a story about his friends. And the funny thing was that there was a friend labelled as a spotlight stealer. According to my son, it is okay to steal the spotlight once a while but don’t do it all the time. Hence, this friend of his was not in a good book of others since he was an attention seeker and I guess he was not a good team player.

People who shine from within don’t need the spotlight

Managing Anger

My daughter wrote on her IG status about her regret for being angry and she was disappointed when her heart betrayed her brain. Two best quotes to calm your anger are

Manage your anger since people can’t manage their stupidity

and

You cannot see your reflection in boiling water

Similarly you cannot see truth in a state of anger
