A Team Building Lesson from Nick Fury

Creating a dream team is like working a puzzle. It’s about recognizing each person’s unique contribution—their strength—and putting them in a position to use it.

Nick Fury did this in The Avengers. Fury selected each member for the unique strength they brought to the team. As a result, the capability of the team far exceeded the individual capability of its members—the whole became greater than the sum of its parts

Weaknesses grab our attention, but strengths get results. Focus on strengths.

No amount of coaching or training can make a duck fly like an eagle, or an eagle paddle like a duck. 

Get the team right, then focus their energy on the objective.

Is your team right?
