A team is like a house: all the parts are of equal importance, but when assembled some must go up and so we down.
Without the roof the house is not protected from the elements.
No proper floor and even standing can be unpleasant.
Take away the walls and the structure collapses.
Therefore leadership and servitude are merely different tasks, independent of rank. Hierarchy aids in the function and does not mean someone is better than the other.
Respect, togetherness and humility are essential.
