Tenets of leaders in healthy organizations include: Persons follow an inner compass. They are guided by their own clear, coherent beliefs, principles and life goals. Persons take responsibility for self. They are aware of their own feelings, and neither blame others nor require others to share those feelings. They ask themselves regularly “What can I learn from this situation?” Persons respond to anxiety. They anticipate and recognize heightened anxiety (due to change, loss, & crisis) and accept periods of tension to address issues and complete tasks. Persons are challenged. They allow persons to work through times of stress or pain. They tolerate the discomfort that can go along with the stresses of having a significant mission and individual growth. Persons respect boundaries. They recognize and respect where one person ends and another begins. Agreed upon roles, structures and procedures are respected. Individual thoughts and feelings are respected. There is little pressure to “go along” with the group. Persons stay in contact. They resist tendencies to distance or cut off from those with whom there is disagreement. They work together for a sufficient amount of time to maintain relationships.
