If you get the wrong people on board, then you spend a lot of time, energy and money managing them. You then create rules and bureaucracy to more efficiently manage your people.
Rules and bureaucracy create limits to effort and creativity; in other words, the boundaries get defined. You get the minimum you expect, no less; but you also lose maximum potential.
Defined boundaries are really fences. Sheep do well in fences. Sheep don’t care much about making the world a better place. Highly self motivated people cannot thrive as sheep in fences.
Motivate and inspire rather than contain and control.
