Individual brilliance, egoisitic anarchy and organisation culture

In an organisation, there would be ten brilliant people with ten brilliant but different ideas on a single issue. But if each insists that only his idea prevail, we would be seeing the birth of nine new organisations which again may have ten brilliant people with similar convictions. The process would be interminable. Consensus is the basic Dharma of organisation culture. This applies as much to a football team as to a corporate or a political party. Contribute, not dictate, is the essence of democracy.The only options to this are egotistical anarchy on the one hand and totalitarianism on the other
