|Five Important Laws of Corrections|
|By Joe Bouchard|
Recently, I published an article with www.corrections.com about the R & R Bully. This is the intimidation/manipulation type who will drop an issue when confronted (the first R is for retreat) and then resurrect the argument when it seems to have been resolved (the second R is for rehash). This was published on the Foundations page on 6/8/2011.
This article inspired more questions from readers. Because of that, I created five important laws of corrections. Please note that this is not THE five important laws. This is just a part of what can be a long list.
First of all, individual interpretations of each law can vary. Most of us will have a middle-of-the-road interpretation and be rather close in deciphering the meaning and application. However, there are those on either end of the continuum of understanding. Fortunately, most of us have a basic, similar understanding.
Some of us believe that laws do not apply because we are “special”. This delusion will not always work. Players change. Foci are re-focused and re-prioritized. Time marches on. One can be “special” for a day – but not perpetually.
We have different mechanisms for coping with stress. When new rules and paradigms come into play, there will be an interesting range of reactions.
Our abilities to justify an ambiguous situation or dilemma are varied. We interpret the meaning in the light of our own needs.
So, whether you are an R & R bully or just someone trying to do the right thing, there are eyes everywhere. Some hope for your fall. Others appear not to care. In the end, it comes down to individual integrity.
