If you’re still following the bleakness of the news today, you may have seen the stories about entities potentially fudging data and individuals (whistleblowers and otherwise) refusing to engage in such directives then losing their jobs. This may or may not have occurred in your careers as evaluators (or other capacities)…clients wanting something potentially negative/hurtful omitted or findings “softened”.
This thread isn’t asking you to disclose specific situations where something like this may have happened to you (but feel free to share if you are comfortable doing so). Rather, in the event that someone in this group does have the misfortune of encountering this, what are some ways that you think one might be able to deal with such requests tactfully?
Cheers to you all!
