Common Sense Killer: Pedestals
Expectations come from many places. They all culminate from past experiences in one way or another. When a team places any individual on a pedestal, they are setting themselves up for disappointment. Teammates who are believed to be outside the realm of best practices because of some skill or ability, will eventually let the people down who put them on the pedestal. The label of “future hall of famer” or “legendary” should never put someone in a position where they do not follow common sense practices. The irony is that it was a disciplined and experienced dedication to best practices that got them that title. Their talent alone would never cause the consistency to be noticed.
