These specialized antidotes for victim behavior and victim cycles give each leader who uses them the opportunity to make an important choice: instead of choosing to behave destructively and make victims of self and others, present and future, values-based leaders can choose another path.

We can choose to pause, to heal and to expand our thinking. Then we can plan our strategies for leading in such a way as to fulfill healthy values. There is no single more important quality of effective values-based leadership than pausing, healing and expanding thinking. This is the lesson of Jesus, of Gandhi and of Dr. King. It is consistent with leading by example. And this strategy of healing instead of hurting allows us to begin the process of practicing the golden rule.

These specialized antidotes to victim behavior and subsequent victim cycles, are more precise than the natural healing methods mentioned elsewhere. While they are not intended to replace natural healing processes, they can often augment and speed up a positive resolution of healing and subsequent expanded thinking which leads effective and intelligent leadership actions.
