It took me some time to respond to this post COL Mikel J. Burroughs.
The New York Philharmonic is an extreme example of an organization where many of the best musicians in this nation aspire to and few are accepted.
While greatness is expected and required at the NY Philharmonic, most of us work with or supervise a range of people who tend not be consistently great but are expert at varying things which makes them essential to the team.
Great leaders inspire people to be more collectively than they could imagine themselves to be individually or collectively. This is where true greatness lies - when teams of imperfect people produce consistently great results because they are trained to work as a team and work much better together than they could apart.

What if Mr Huang asked, "That was beautiful. Are there any areas that could be done differently to improve our performance together?" He knows the answers, so he can have his musicians think about what they heard and tell him," I intend to.... to improve the....a concern is..." The Leader may be pleased with the response that he would have ordered or if it not quite there or complete help guide the musician to solving it. Then the reply would be, "Very well." It changes the Leader - follower to Leader-Leader. The musician learns to think, not just follow orders. The Leader's challenge is not giving the answer, since we already know the Leader knows the solution in this example. Think about the thinking.
