Very Curious Equity Ethics...

It was a wonderful conversation the other day that reminded me of a personal and professional area that I worked on several years ago. I was talking with a client about a simple subject regarding being invited to lunch. It was a simple subject with some profound insights into her expectations.

She was upset and I could understand why. It seems that over the last year or so, more and more people were not inviting her to lunch. The result was that she was not going out to lunch as much as she wanted to.

We got into a conversation. No, we got into a discussion. The topic started on how much she enjoyed going to lunch, especially with others. We meandered through the topic and hit on areas about the joy of lunchtime companionship. The sadness incurred when she saw others going and leaving her behind.

I asked her how much she enjoyed going out to lunch. She said "Lots." I asked her how she felt when others asked her to go. She said "Great!" I asked her when was the last time others asked her to go. She said she could not remember. Then I asked her the big one, "When was the last time you asked someone else to lunch?"

Her mouth dropped open. The message was received. Her face turned red with embarrassment. She realized that she was showing through her actions that she was not willing to extend to others that which she wanted to have extended toward her. "Wow!" was all I heard. They did not invite her because she was not inviting.
