I am sure that your instructor has her/his favorite answer for this question. Some of mine include, leaving your personal opinions and judgement outside the door of the workplace, treating each human being like a human being- another way of saying respect everyone, keep your mouth shut and smile when in doubt or embittered by the client's attitude, etc, etc , etc. In other words, stay focused on your responsibility as a professional to teach and every client. Good luck in your career.

When you are in a professional situation, you will certainly meet people with opposing views. It's important to actively listen to them instead of a volley kind of communication you would have with your friends where you share your opinions.
You have to respond using the tools for your specific career. You're so focused on listening and hearing them, that you are not focused on yourself. You may register something they say that you philosophically disagree with, but you still serve them according to their needs and their goals. You may later ponder or just disregard the point you disagreed with.
The focus is accomlished not only by keeping your client's and your company's goals and rules in mind, but also with maturity and self-control. As you mature you learn that there is a time and a place for everything, and there are times when you think you might burst if you don't say anything, but you learn that you won't.
Sometimes that is by hard character building work, sometimes by kind corrections, sometimes by painful experience, or disciplinary action, but all are tools to build charcter, maturity, and self-control - if you accept the corrections and learn from them. You learn to prioritize what matters and not to be so self-absorbed.

You have to focus on the employer's/company's Vision, Mission, Values,Goals and ethics. It is difficult sometimes to leave your personal attitudes or beliefs at the door if there is a conflict. Sometimes the conflict does not present itself until you have been employed with the company for a period of time. Hopefully you can come to a happy median. If not, it's time to find a new job/employer.
