Leaders and Teams

“Every team must be made up of people with different roles, strengths, temperaments and perspectives. They must always be open to criticism and they must always be on the alert against groupthink. The glory of Judaism is its insistence that only in heaven is there one commanding Voice. Down here on earth no individual may ever hold a monopoly of leadership. Out of the clash of perspectives – King, Priest and Prophet – comes something larger than any individual or role could achieve.”
