Acting as an Ensemble

“In Judaism, a leader is not one who holds himself higher than those he or she leads. That is a moral failing, not a mark of stature. The absence of hierarchy does not mean the absence of leadership. A leader is one who coordinates, giving structure and shape to the enterprise, making sure that everyone is following the same script, travelling in the same direction, acting as an ensemble rather than a collection of prima donnas.”

Covenant and Conversation: Numbers, p. 191
