The Compromise Trap
IN THIS SUMMARY
In today’s corporate environment, many individuals feel pressured to compromise their values, principles, or beliefs. They compromise what they know is right because they believe that is what it takes to get ahead. But in The Compromise Trap, Elizabeth Doty proves that this is not at all the case. Compromising one’s beliefs only results in feelings of worthlessness, anxiety, and depression, and once someone begins to compromise their values, it can be incredibly difficult to recognize what their core values once were. Doty states that individuals should redefine the game by utilizing their six personal foundations to build their confidence and understanding. Through practicing each foundation effectively, individuals can maintain their dignity, strength, values, and purpose in the workplace.
