Concept 3 Al Anon

Concept Three - The right of decision makes effective leadership possible.

One of the questions in Paths to Recovery asks Do I ever ask someone to do a task and then try to direct the details of how it should be done? If so, how can I change this pattern?

Pre Al Anon I was very guilty of asking someone in a work situation to do something but then wanting it done my way. As a mom I was also guilty of doing that to my kids. The first step of changing this behavior was becoming aware of it. I needed to accept that there is often more than one right way to get from point A to point B. Today, I try to catch myself when I do this and then back pedal to give the other person the opportunity and dignity to do things their way.

In gratitude,
