Model 1 – standing on top of the prow, out front, commanding the ship by cajoling everyone to do what you say, how you say, when you say.
Model 2 – finding other leaders, building teams, working with, encouraging all the talents to work out how to use all the talents to win together.
The first is often faster to a certain point and then falters. It depends of energy and action and on one person being right almost all the time.
The second is ofter slower to a certain point and then faster. It depends on energy without ego and collaboration without compromise.
