“I recently heard that a (now former) financial services CEO was asked by his team if “fairness” should be one of their core values. “No. That’s ridiculous. Life is unfair” said the CEO.

Fairness is a recurring topic in public discourse about business. In practice, however, we are often conflicted about what fairness means in a given situation and in particular, how to translate it into the complexity of business life.”

In the July edition of Coaching Perspectives Magazine, Charles challenges readers to think about why fairness matters in business. He explores how the insights and perspective of a coaching approach can help and why it is important to think about the underlying assumptions at play within businesses about how people are motivated.
