The Success of the Team

Proverbs 15:22 tells us that “Plans fail for lack of counsel, but with many advisers they succeed.” This is confirmed in a book I’ve been slowly reading through called “Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence” by Daniel Goleman, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee. In Chapter 9 the authors write, “In the last few decades much research has proven the superiority of group decision making over that of even the brightest of individual in the group.” (P.173)

So yes, researchers confirm that two heads are truly better than one. If your one of those leaders who thinks that things are done better if you do them yourself, you better think again!
