For the last two decades, businesses have placed a superior importance on ‘the war for talent’. But many are now learning the hard way that having the smartest people in the room is pointless if they can’t work together. Recent studies show that the high value work in organisations is now being done by teams, not individuals. And more importantly, it’s the companies who can cultivate a team of teams who consistently outperform their competitors. Our world is too complex and the challenges we face are too interdependent to rely on a handful of high-achievers. We need to shift from overvaluing individual attributes and learn to ignite, develop and harness the exponential power of teams.
