DIETER DUDY -- It's All About Respect -- or conversely -- Feel Free to Disagree ... But Do It With Dignity
Well the truth is, I'm not always right, and so care in the way I should handle things is important (but not always followed 100% of the time).
That's why yesterday (March 16th), I was delighted to see a short post by Dieter Dudy. I asked permission to share it here with you, and so here it is:
We have many avenues available to us to let people know how we feel on issues; letters to the editor, on-line comments, public gatherings, social media etc. We may come under fire for our opinions as people counter with opposing points of view.
All healthy...as long as one element is a constant. Respect!
Always treat those holding a contra-view with the respect that you would expect them to accord you. No good ever comes from slagging people or their opinions...nothing ever gets solved in the mire.
Feel free to disagree...but do it with dignity.
Dieter is currently a Director with Farm2Chef and continues to be passionate about food security, economic diversity and fiscal responsibility.
And if that wasn't already enough to keep him busy, Dieter is also a Councillor with the City of Kamloops (elected November 2014).
