CP Leading Beyond Authority briefing sheet

CP briefing sheet concerning Leading beyond Authority. It states that "People who lead beyond their authority can produce change beyond their direct circle of control". But how can we justify the police and the military leading beyond their authority? What has happened to responsibility and accountability? If these are lost then an individual and a network can drive CHANGE whilst being totally unaccountable for their actions. Aren't we seeing this happen?

The document also says "very soon, the ability to lead a network will become as important as the ability to lead an organisation". It goes on to describe "influencing others in different worlds: take things forward without simply seeking consensus". So CP encourages no accountability and no concensus? This is destabilising the checks and balances of our society. Is this deliberate? What is the change CP wants to produce?
