Innocents trust that no matter how things look now, everything will work out in the end. This positive attitude is contagious; it helps others renew their faith, finding sanctuary, peace, and happiness.
Innocent organizations are often highly value- driven, coalescing around belief systems that bring everyone together and may even call them to a higher good.
When Innocent slips into the shadow side, the unbounded optimism and need to keep-the-peace can feel naïve. Sometimes the glass isn’t half full, and the Innocent may need a reality check to keep things moving forward.
