It’s the last week of work before Christmas and I bet you don’t have much time to read blogs so here’s a heavily summarised version of why leveraging your strength of Fairness will increase your performance and wellbeing:
- It’s fulfilling.
- It builds self-esteem by creating a feeling that you have done the right thing, even if that was difficult.
- It promotes personal growth because thinking about what is fair enhances perspective taking (the ability to imaginatively place yourself in the issues of another) and emotional responsiveness.
- Exposure to alternate views, beliefs and values enables you to reflect effectively on your own ways of approaching life and make appropriate adjustments for your own benefit.
- It’s linked to loving to learn and seek new challenges; enjoying intellectually stimulating environments; reflecting; setting goals; and having broad social support for work and accomplishments.
