Dan H is a vortex of phrenic activity wrapped around a cult of personality. He needs a squad of lemonade drinkers. There are a lot of folks that just can’t operate as super-pumped, genuflecting cogs in the dream factory. Steve Jobs was a classic, as is Elon Musk. They burned/burn through people like tissue paper. That said, it’s a high risk strategy that can be extremely effective if the cult leader has the right vision and can constantly pull the right strings. But, for every iconic success, there are thousands of crashes and burns.
