Discretion Ritual

Like Lord Burghley 1520-1598, use discretion, humility and tact. Avoid entanglements.

Lord Burghley (1520-1598)

Lord Burghley (1520-1598)

He was an excellent administrator and brought order and stability to the Royal Court and House of Lords. He believed in religious tolerance, so long as subjects were loyal to the Queen. With discretion, humility and tact, he dealt with the powerful nobles of the realm. He avoided entanglements throughout his career of over 40 years, and always maintained the full confidence of the Queen.

He impressed his colleagues with his ability to hold a seemingly vast amount of information. He worked very long hours, was tactful and all his decisions were based on sound judgment. He was also a very patient man who knew that Elizabeth always wanted to have the last word in any arguments.

When in doubt, pay close attention, and pace the positive intent of your organization.
