The conscious leader recognises avoidance.

She sees when people avoid dealing with reality in a particular way. Some avoid looking at the facts, others avoid people; some rebel against rules for the sake of it, and others refuse to set goals.

She knows that any one of these, when it’s extreme and touted as a virtue, is simply a rejection of that mode of operating, of that reality. The person has most likely been wounded by someone in that area in their past. She has compassion and sees that the person has anger towards that aspect of themselves too.

The conscious leader challenges people to move into the zones of reality they avoid.
