Thanks for the feedback Reverend. What most intrigues me about the Eisler model is the difference between Power Over and Power To or With. When the leader is not just demanding or expecting everything to flow to them, but takes on more of what was called “servant leadership” back when I was a church goer, then it’s a whole new ballgame.

Being the leader in that context means making sure that those in your charge are safe and have what they need to do their jobs/functions available to them. Respect and support flows both ways and the hierarchy is one of actualization — it’s a win-win rather than a win-lose model.
