    Pros

    - Left Brain: 'Performance-based culture': you can rise quickly and gain access to top people and a great many resources when you have success...

    - Right Brain: 'Performance-based culture': perform within the confines of a near-soulless formal organization, working with, but also to best your valued co-workers who are similarly numb - so that you can continue to do what you do...

    Advice to Management

    The elephant did learn to tap dance, but the mice now need to be nurtured, not stomped - they will never be in control but they can stampede a thousand elephants. Give them real reasons to like the elephant not fear him. You'll succeed.
