Assignment 6: Personal Responsibility (Jun 6-10)

Discussion Questions:

(1) Can you give an example of an obstacle you've overcome at work? 

(2)Why is it tempting to blame someone or something else when an obstacle comes up in the workplace? Is it helpful to shift the blame?

(3) Agent Canterbury says that, while circumstances are not always within our control, our reaction to those circumstances is within our control. 

What are some examples of controlling your reaction vs. controlling the circumstance?

For example: 

  • Plant closures related to chip shortage

  • COVID-19 pandemic

  • Rising fuel costs

  • Inclement weather
