At Sodexo, we know that it's important to respect and follow the leadership of your management team, but we also know that you won't always agree with the decisions they make. How do you respond when a person in authority over you makes a decision you disagree with? Are you able to continue doing your best work in the face of disagreements?
"I definitely think it's okay to disagree with a decision a manager or leader has made, but it's important not to contribute to a toxic work environment by gossiping, complaining, or sniping about that decision or manager behind closed doors. That's absolutely unacceptable behavior. It's important to always treat your management team with respect, especially when you disagree with them. If I had an ethical or moral concern with a decision my team leader made, I would see if I could discuss it with them in private."
"I think that it is possible to be a great team member, even when disagreeing with the leader. It's all in how you maintain respect for each other despite the difference in opinion. It's okay to disagree you have to communicate your thoughts professionally."
