In the early 90s I interviewed IBM Senior Scientist Victor Witt, an Incline Village neighbor and friend, for a TV series pilot "Women Mean Business" (can't remember now why a guy on a woman's biz show.....), anyway, it was a good interview about leadership, and why his team at IBM was successful in giving birth to the first floppy storage disc system. Victor's key point was: as the leader you hire the best people you can get, with varied talents, and always smarter than you are.

This team process of collaboration and technology (talent) exchange, hatched a world-changing invention. I call the process collaborative leadership in the truest sense; Victor was however reputed to be somewhat 'dictatorial' in his management style, but maybe that's what made the collaboration work: he knew when to make the decision, or hand it to others (smarter than he) to make them!

Just like my friend Victor did, how I continue to operate with my business partner of many years and very much the same as to how we accomplish things today in the world of social.
