There can be an eye-roll factor to calls for regionalism. And some of that is justified. Over many years, we’ve seen leaders who didn’t want to be near one another – much less agree to anything – emerge from a meeting and declare a breakthrough simply because they had been in a room together.

Loyalty is an important quality. It’s what helps bind friendships and loved ones. It’s what holds teams together. But, dare I say it – there are limits to loyalty.
