Now, part of the role of a lawyer---especially an in-house lawyer---is to protect the organization against all risks, including itself. So, I dutifully drew the attention of the CEO---on several different occasions---to the various illegalities and irregularities (which, by the way, related to matters other than just notices and orders), and I politely requested that the CEO issue a direction to staff that all draft notices and orders be submitted to me for checking and review before they issued. Despite several emails to the CEO about this matter, I never received any reply---not even an acknowledgment of one of my communications. Some years later the Ombudsman investigated the organization and wrote a scathing report on the many illegalities and irregularities. It was one of the most damning reports of the type in question I have ever read in my 35 years in the law. Only some time thereafter did the CEO issue that direction to staff. Better late than never. No, not really.
Try being entirely real for a day. Then do it again, the next day, and thereafter. In time, you may even get to like it. Before you know it, you will find that 'life ceases to be a fraction and becomes an integer,’ as Dr Harry Emerson Fosdick pointed out in his helpful book On Being a Real Person. I kid you not.
