The Five Hazardous Attitudesby DA Caravella on 06/10/20
We are all capable of good decisions and actions and not so good decisions and actions. When not so good, those decision and actions have been found to often be driven by attitudes--thought patterns and habits--we develop. Both good and bad can be changed. Here we introduce the not-so-good, generally, and later each hazardous attitude in particular.
During decision-making training, hazardous attitude(s) manifest themselves in actions. And when one appears it is usually displayed regularly. An instructor can identify the attitude and often remediate it. Sometimes, however, a hazardous attitude borders on pathology and cannot be easily remedied.
When we look at each of the hazardous attitudes the reader will admit that at times each has been exercised. That's normal. What is dangerous is when such attitude(s) dominate thinking and action.
