Taking Advantage of Gifting
Great teams steward the gifting of teammates well. Great teams don’t put all their eggs in one basket. When a game plan depends too heavily on a single gifted individual then the team will live and die with the fortunes of that individual. When one gifted person carries a team on his back, it defeats the purpose and benefits of a team. It’s also not fair to expect a gifted person to carry more than their fair share of tasks, responsibilities, emotional burdens and blame. Great teams integrate gifted individuals with the gifts of their teammates to make sure that no matter how gifted one person is, teamwork can magnify the aggregate gifts of the entire team.
