Join vs Lead a Team
X and Y conserve a circle.
There is a (mandatory) circular relationship between an individual and a group, therefore a joiner, any group, is, from the joiner’s point of view, the leader (leader is joiner and vice versa).
Therefore we have to choose our joining (and our leading) carefully.
Groups go out-of-business, meaning, we have to join over and over and over again (presenting the ultimate cash-flow problem) (thought leaders avoid this). Conservation of the circle is the core dynamic in nature.
