* Distributed leadership. As a coach guiding business teams & music bands
in competitive environments I appreciate their parallels:

Team/band members step up or back as needed serving a through line of mission/motif. There is respect for individual know-how & trust in another's
ability to bring it. No matter the backstory, people have each other's backs performing when it counts.

Distributed leadership is an agile framework for a whole team of individuals
to excel activating their specific skills-sets as a project, conversation, unfolding strategy or performance requires.
