A courageous leader recognizes how common backlash and sabotage is, and that both are the product of evacuated courage in those disheartened by difficulty. The leader recognizes that he is not powerful enough to have caused the upset nor the circumstances that many say disturb them.

Aware that each person connected to the disappointment has a contribution, he faces little temptation to assume he alone is responsible for the unwelcomed turn of events. He has grounded himself in the understanding that he is not significant enough to have produced the organization’s successes or its failures. He has a part. His colleagues have a part. The system has a part. And, factors beyond anyone’s control have also contributed to the outcome.
