Speaking Cautiously
By: Rick Boxx
August 28, 2012

As a commercial banker I had lunch with Bob who introduced me to his new Chief Financial Officer. I was shocked when I realized the new CFO had just been released from prison. His release and previous conviction for fraud had been in the newspaper!

My dilemma was, “How should I respond?” My customer seemed enamored with his CFO, and I didn’t want to offend him. He was known for taking on charitable projects, so I decided to follow the wisdom of a proverb.

Proverbs 30:10 teaches, “Do not slander a slave to his master, or he will curse you and you will be found guilty.”

The CFO ended up being a good hire. The lesson I learned is this: When speaking about someone to their boss, walk cautiously and wisely.
