Lots of wisdom in this TED talk from organizational psychologist (and host of TED’s podcast WorkLife) Adam Grant. According to him, here are some key reasons why a team succeeds:

  • teams with too many « big stars » are not performing at their best as this means lots of egos which leads to infighting.
  • in a team, you can have too much « talent ». Make sure you have enough of the key contributors to bring balance and humility to the team.
  • value humility as a key success factor and seek to turn narcissists into « humbled narcissists » to combine humility with confidence.
