Forget The Super Chickens

Organizations are often run according to "the superchicken model," where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others.

  • And yet, this isn't what drives the most high-achieving teams.
  • Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results.
  • It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader.
  • Because as Heffernan points out: "Companies don't have ideas. Only people do."
