It is interesting you want to think that the chief cornerstone is not the one which determines how things go (which is what a leader does). The church is built upon the foundation of the prophets and apostles and chief cornerstone – without which there would be no building (Eph 2:19-22). They are the source, but as such they are also the leaders, with Christ being the ultimate in both. Christ is our model and we should seek to be like Him. Leaders should lead sacrificially, but make no mistake, scripture is clear time and again that woman is not to have authority over men (in context this speaks of marriage and church). Feel free to ignore the decree made by God in the garden of Eden (Genesis 3:16) at your own peril – but teaching that woman can/should have authority over men is error.
A chief cornerstone is not the one which determines how things go. A builder determines how things go.
And your argument is a red herring: Even if Christ and after him the apostles are both sources and leaders – if men are not told to lead, but to be the source as Christ is the source/ the Savior, then it has no bearing on leadership.
Feel free to add burdens to scripture which is not part of Christ’s freedom for the oppressed, His message, at your own peril.
