I was talking to a friend the other day who told me about someone who had just signed on as an executive at his business.
The business was excited to have this person come in and take things to the next level.
Until…. after signing the contract, and getting things ready, said hire backtracked and advised my friend that he was no longer going to take up the job.
Now I understand that things
It may be an old-fashioned idea but once upon a time, an individual’s word (not to mention their signature on a contract) was considered sacrosanct. I realize that we live in a dynamic and rapidly-changing world, but I’d like to think that trust was still a valuable currency.
Am I wrong here? What would you all feel in a similar situation?
