Control

A financial analyst once asked me if I was afraid of losing control of our organization. I told him I’ve never had control and I never wanted it.

And the more that people will devote themselves to your cause on a voluntary basis, a willing basis, the fewer hierarchs and control mechanisms you need.
– Herb Kelleher, ex-CEO of Southwest Airlines
