One of my all-time favorite movies is Remember the Titans.

Groupthink

The phenomenon of 'Groupthink' leads to ego clashes and reinforcement of existing biases. They somethings fail to reach any decision and may complicate matters further by incorporating all points of view. Design by Committee is something best avoided.

Collective Intelligence

An extensive study in 'Groupthink' which included testing the social sensitivity, as well as the IQ of the individuals, showed that:

  • Equal participation was a key ingredient of better performance. Group dynamics can get worse if team members clash frequently.
  • If team members are pitted against each other for a common prize, like a promotion, then group work suffers.
  • If team members are not open to ideas from other members or are interrupting them, it can sabotage group performance.
  • Teams with a higher proportion of women have better collective intelligence.

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” 

John C. Maxwell

Passion is an essential element for success

A leader will never be able to motivate his team if he or she is not full of passion concerning the work that is done. It is the number one quality for success.

Only those with vision and passion can build up a passionate team. Passion brings out more positivity, honesty, reliability, and professionalism, in the leader and subordinates, and those are the building blocks of leadership.
