Individual Leadership

RC leadership policy has evolved to the point that we depend on individual leadership, individual responsibility. Any RC leader is expected to consult with all responsible Co-Counselors concerned with a particular decision, as far as possible, before he or she makes the decision. All RC leaders are subject to periodic review of their policies and positions by the Co-Counselors they lead. We have control of the leadership by the membership, but we do not have the usual creaky interference by patterned competitiveness, nor do we attempt to work by committee leadership, which made many of us old long before our time through the hours we spent in other organizations, reaching unworkable solutions with great fatigue.
