The article compares leadership to golf. Good leaders work as hard as golfers, who must constantly work on the basics of their craft, even if they are at the top of their game. The way in which the two are most familiar is the need for versatility. Golfers have three common grips, including the interlocking grip, the overlap grip, and the baseball grip. Leaders must use similar techniques as these grips by constantly regulating how much control they want over their organization, at the cost of power.
