On March 14th, Greg Smith, a former Wall Street executive, submitted his resignation to Goldman Sachs and published a letter in the New York Times explaining his reasons. He publicly blasted Goldman’s culture and their lack of concern for their customers’ best interests.
Although I don’t know if Mr. Smith had conversations with his bosses prior to his letter, there is a preferred way to handle conflict.
Jesus taught in Matthew 18:15, “If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over.”
Although this directive was meant for Christians, the principle is helpful to all. If you have an issue with someone, give them a chance to fix it, before going public.
