Integrated Leadership

Institutional actors in position of authority, power, and leadership.
  1. Business: CEO's, CFO's, high and middle executives.
  2. Government: Presidents, governors, mayors, congresspersons
  3. Political Parties: Chairpersons, district directors.
Top down leadership:
Virtually all government, military, business, and political systems are top down leadership systems. Top down leadership is characterized by:
  1. Pyramid flowcharts and distinct levels of subordination
  2. Election, competition, or appointment based leadership.
  3. Highly defined, regimented, and restricted leadership eligibility.
  4. Complex and high discrimination bars for leadership participation.
  5. o      Performance
  6. o      Education
  7. o      Specialized skills
  8. Large numbers of appointed officers. (security is based on organization)
  9. Large constituent bases. (emphasis on efficiency)
  10. Clearly defined leadership roles and boundaries.
  11. Emphasis on monetary rewards for leadership.
Strengths of top down leadership are:
  1. Strict and highly organized chains of command
  2. Outcome is highly regulated and emphasized.
  3. Participation is regimented, strictly controlled, and homogeneous.
  4. Very efficient although highly unpopular with low approval ratings.
Bottom up leadership:
Many organizations are bottom up leadership systems, grass roots, religious, occupy-wall-street, Alcoholics Anonymous.Bottom up leadership is characterized by:
  1. Oval shaped flowcharts and less distinct levels of subordination
  2.  Loosely defined, regimented, and open leadership eligibility.
  3. Comprised of multiple cells of organization. (security is based on participation)
  4. Small numbers of appointed officers.
  5. Smaller sized constituent bases. (emphasis on participation)
  6. Less clearly defined leadership roles and boundaries.
  7. Emphasis on social rewards for leadership.
  8. Simpler and less discriminatory bars for leadership participation.
  9. o      Not necessarily performance based
  10. o      Not necessarily education based
  11. o      Not necessarily specialized skills based
Strengths of  bottom up leadership are:
  1. Casual personable chains of command.
  2. Participation emphasized over outcome.
  3. Participation is casual, unregimented, loosely controlled, and diversified.
  4. Participation levels are higher and motivational levels elevated.
  5. Very popular with high approval ratings, but very inefficient.
Note to top-down leaders:
It is difficult to grow an organization if outcome is over emphasized and participation under emphasized.
Note to bottom-up leaders:
It is difficult to be effective or efficient without clearly defined leadership.
Both leadership systems are failing.
  1. Top-down because of social dislike, low approval ratings, low participation.
  2. Bottom-up because of lack of leadership definition and outcomes.
Integrated leadership mends the shortcomings of top-down and bottom-up leadership. Top-down leadership is mended by incorporating bottom-up leadership strengths and popularity into its system. Bottom-up leadership is mended by clearly defining its leadership through fair sortition methods.
Integrated leadership incorporates both leadership models into a complete system.  The chamber of citizens is a bottom-up leadership model.  The chamber of autocrats is a top-down leadership model.  Both models and both strengths combined form a whole stronger than the sum of the two parts.  In addition, sortition methods of the citizen chamber allow total integrated leadership  apportionment in numbers equivalent to the original apportionment numbers of the 1790 democratic revolution.
It's not enough that leaders be chosen fairly (elections, sortition), leadership must be integrated into a complete system truly representing and serving its constituents.
A political party, team, or organization that incorporates the comprehensive whole of integrated leadership will have the advantage in a political environment of strictly top-down or bottom-up leadership systems.
First mappings of organization structures approximating the ideal of integrated leadership are discussed and promoted on twitter at @coach1640280  @_MARP
It's common sense. When service in a restaurant suffers, more waiters are needed.
It's common sense. When fire breaks out everywhere, more fire fighters are needed. 
It's common sense. When crime becomes rampant, more police are needed.
It's common sense. Building a house requires enough carpenters or waiting a lifetime for results.
#c535+1 didn't build Hoover dam.  #c535+1 didn't build the interstate highway.  Middle America did.
It's common sense. When democracy morphs to elected oligarchy and America lacks governance, send help to the few surviving democratic representatives.  More representatives are required.  More presidents are required.

Keep the #c535+1.  Send 6800 more.   #c535+1 is elected autocrat-centered oligarchy.  #c7329 is citizen-centered democracy. The MART citizen-chamber does the right thing.  The MART autocrat-chamber gets it done. Third millennium citizen-democracy is unstoppable.  Resistance or delay is truly tragic.
