Historically, having a leader that can rally a tribe is what we've valued above all else. Can this person get people to show up? Can this person inspire? Are they likable? Can this person not disgust everyone?

Our tribes have gotten larger, more specific, and more complex. Maybe we're entering an era where the a rallying cry isn't enough. Maybe now, what we require is someone who can articulate the complex needs of our shared goals, not only to their own tribe, but (especially) to tribes that aren't primed to care or understand.

We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided...
