Everybody has unique, important strengths. Great work comes from bringing those strengths to the surface and playing to them. A world where everybody is the same would be drab, mediocre, and joyless. Regular act of acknowledgement increases overall happiness, and it also raises trust. The funny thing about trust is that, when you have it, issues like governance and who deserves how much credit seem magically to disappear. Powerful groups develop their own unique identities that, in some ways, subsume their individual participants.
