Strike a balance

There is a delicate balance that must be struck between leadership, management, and vocational prowess. A leader might be persuasive and personable or strong, steely-eyed in the face of disaster. A manager might be too closely involved, or disconnected, discombobulated. The technical or vocational prowess a person possesses comes in degrees from one extreme to another. I believe it would be a noble endeavor and a monumental accomplishment to find perfect equilibrium and maintain that Utopian condition. In the heat of battle, I know who I would distill comfort and confidence from and who I would find in a fetal curl.
