Paradox of NT leadership

It seems like a paradox, but the role of leadership in the NT churches was to bring the body of Christ to a level of maturity where they did not depend on leaders to lead them. If you look at the chapter on church meetings (1 Cor. 14) there is not even a hint of a leader leading a meeting. Leaders led by example and by their teaching, more than by directing the church. It was a different paradigm of leadership than Christian leadership today.
