Why Good People don’t always do the Right Thing

After being awarded a medal of Bravery from the Lieutenant Governor for saving a young woman’s life from a deadly house fire, I was left confused as to why I was the person who stepped in while the bystanders that day couldn’t even speak up and call 911.  While I was doing something that seemed like the obvious right thing to do – they stood by and did nothing.  I looked for answers and found them in a phenomenon of our human nature called the “Bystander Effect”.  Watch or listen to the talk I presented at Flip the Script Storytelling event and learn more about why good people don’t always do the right thing – and more importantly, what we can do about it.
