Should I stake this tree?

Hi all! I live in west central Indiana. We bought this young Austrian pine a few weeks ago from a local nursery. It was potted and already had this heavy lean. The folks at the nursery told me to plant it with the lean facing north and that should eventually correct it. I went ahead and planted it with the root ball level, clearly keeping the lean. My question is should I stake it and try to pull the tree against the lean or should I leave it? We have clay soil here.
