YOU must be the master over them otherwise they will be over you. Then, you've lost. The "modes" are items which the leader must take as a personal risk and will define themself. Each of these four aids are composed of two mutually exclusive choices or ideals. YOU must find the right balance of when to utilize each. There are no shortcuts here and each situation is unique.
