It’s doesn’t matter how great our managers or group leaders are, when they face people with strong emotional issues and personality problems; it doesn’t matter how great we are as individuals or how great Joshua (dynamic yesod) and Caleb (strong leader malchut) were, when any of us are outnumbered by a group of harmful colleagues.

These two great leaders were forced to do a reconnaissance mission with colleagues that end up admitting to having low self-esteem. Their negative image of and bad feelings towards themselves lead them to do what psychologists could have easily predicted: to point out flaws in something outside of themselves; specifically, to say nasty gossip about Israel, which ends up leading one of the greatest tragic sequences in Jewish history[1].

This happens time and time again: instead of companies and non-profits easily teaming up and synergistically moving forward with productive progress, they end up getting entangled in webs of drama, letting gossip and maliciousness set warped standards for reality.

Implement measures to prevent people with low self-worth from being able to ruin a good company or synagogue; develop good self-esteem in yourself and your family-it makes a huge difference in life.

If someone poses a threat, you must have a group of mature, strong people on hand to assertively tell them that their emotional blackmail will not be accepted in the organization.
