    to deal with new issues. Leaders should not change their minds too

    that creates problems for the organization.

    sit back occasionally and be amused by what is happening. Laughter can be
    a great reliever of tension.

    and strength to organizations. Leaders must be willing to be flexible but
    consistency and coherence are important elements of large organizations.

    but must also keep up with any changes.
