Learnt from World History
#I read--"When the Europeans came to the Americas, they usually defeated all the native Red Indian tribes by killing their leader and then watching the tribe crumble. This same happened in business, politics and almost anything meant defeating your competition.
Only one Red Indian tribe remained undefeated for 200 years the Apaches. How did the Apaches survive undefeated against the Spanish and other mighty armies? Through a collaborative leadership model. Apache leaders, called Nant`ans, kept changing. Geronimo, a famous Nant`an, called commanded an army but was rather a spiritual leader. Whenever a Nant`an died, a new one emerged, not by appointment but by a collaborative process. People followed a Nant`an because they wanted to and not because they had to. This collaborative leadership model enabled the Apaches to survive.
