How do you handle an accusation?

Is there someone in your life that is creating an issue that you don’t believe is justified?

Recently this has come up while I was doing some work in a large organization. It was obvious that the perpetrator of the accusation was doing all she could to get her ‘boss’ distracted about how little she was doing at work and place the focus on me.

This reminded me of the quotation from Steve Maraboli (speaker, author, and behavioral scientist); “Stop pointing fingers and placing blame on others. Your life can only change to the degree that you accept responsibility for it.”

I’ll conclude with these questions to ask the accuser;

  • Are you sure you know all the facts?
  • Do you realize that without the facts you are not only trying to hurt me, but you are hurting the entire organization?
  • When are you going to start to act more responsible?
