'Organizations don't need more high performing individuals, they need more high performing teams.'
When we think of the world of professional sports we can point to many examples of high performing teams - they are not always the teams with the best individual players, but together they are the best team. It's harder to point to similar examples in organizations. Over the years I've often heard, 'we want to hire the best and the brightest'; the focus has been on the top marks, the top awards, the top individual accolades. This is changing. 21st century skill models highlight the need for collaboration, diversity, and team work. As the business world becomes more complex we need more ideas and perspectives at the table, and those sitting around the table need to be able to listen, acknowledge, debate, disagree, agree, set a direction, and take action. The teams that can do this will win - and have more fun, more job satisfaction, higher engagement scores, and more. The teams that don't will be left behind.
