MIAMI, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- As more red flags are uncovered about the Fort Hood tragedy, some observers allege that political correctness played a significant role in enabling this to happen. Has public concern over political correctness grown from its well-intentioned origin of inclusion and acceptance into a dangerous unwillingness to acknowledge obvious patterns of toxic behavior?
Psychiatrist, physician, speaker, and author Dr. Gaby Cora asserts that dangerous behavior in a work environment, including a military work environment, must not be ignored in the name of political correctness. It is certainly fine to allow people to voice their opinions and discuss their religious views in public. If, however, you have a disgruntled employee or soldier, attention must be paid to the distinction between speaking out loud and bad-mouthing the decisions of leaders and peers. Fearing accusations of intolerance, many are afraid to voice legitimate safety concerns, which can endanger others.
As the nation's discussion of political correctness continues to heat up, invite Dr. Cora to answer:
-- How can organizations prevent similar tragedies? -- What new policies should organizations implement? -- How has political correctness changed America? -- When has behavior crossed the line? -- What actions can leaders take when they recognize a threat?
