This continues our look at the book, The Starfish and the Spider.
A champion is relentless in promotion a new idea.‚ Catalysts are charismatic, but champions take it to the next level.‚ A catalyst’s charisma has a sublety to it.‚ Catalysts inspire and naturally connect people, but there’s nothing subtle about the champion.
Champions are inherently hyperactive.‚ Like catalysts, they operate well in non-hierachical environments, but they tend to be more like salesmen than organizer or connectors.‚ Selling is what they do.
In a decentralized organization, champions take over for the catalysts and make things happen on a much larger scale.
