“Courage is grace under pressure” is a famous quotation by Ernest Hemingway. Tell us about a personal moment of your grace under pressure.

In 2009, I tried to quit my job, because I was burned out severely due to the current organizational structure and processes of my department at that time.

They sent a Manager from another Region to check out why things were the way they were to try to implement changes.  He came to interview a select few of people, and I was one of them.

In that moment, I didn’t hesitate to tell him what what going on. I had nothing to lose, and I had the courage to be a change agent.  A change for the better so that no one had to go through what I was going through and what some others were going through. A chance to help make things fair and right. I had the chance to do the right thing.

That was my personal moment of grace under pressure.
