Bible-Oriented Enterprise Architecture: Part Six
Being a good leader requires us to frequently examine how we act when we become offended. Within a modern enterprise, everyone is vulnerable to attack, but enterprise architects as leaders are more likely to get criticized since they're up front. Likewise, the test of offense is a way to understand how quickly we are willing to forgive others.
Hating on someone that you have to work with will only serve to undermine the ability to build truly valuable relationships that propel the enterprise forward. Playa hatin is also an impediment to team building. Hindsight teaches us that when people offend us, that it is usually driven more by ignorance than malice.
The bible provides guidance in this regard. Consider reading the following verses:
- Hebrews 12:14-15
- Mark 11:25-26
- Galatians 2:1-9
