Ravenyard Priorities Assessment - Stability


STABILITY - the ability to withstand force or stress without being distorted, dislodged, or damaged (firm, steadfast, reliable, dependable, unwavering, consistent, order, permanence).

Stability is both an inner quality of stress management and an external quality of presence.  It requires self-discipline and a commitment to being consistent, measured, and dependable for others.
