Everything In The Universe.

A curious thing about leadership. In cycling, the team's job is to help the leader to win. They're protected by the domestiques. The domestiques pace them, protect them, collect drinks for them and if needs be, give them their bikes and wait by the side of the road.

The leaders are the ones who become famous. And well paid. And the subject of sycophantic biographies. And they are loved because...I'm not sure why.

~~~

I've seen other leaders in action, and I was raised to admire a different type of leader. Leadership, as I understood it, was self sacrificing and modest. Success was determined in the behaviour and choices of others. Leadership meant setting stuff up for other people to take on and carry forward, for other people to benefit from.
