“If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isn’t thinking.” GEN George S. Patton
The team leader tends to shape the team’s thinking toward solving problems. But it is a fact that we are all wired differently, and we all think differently. Good leaders need to surround themselves with talent that can bring thinking from all points of the compass to balance their approach to problem-solving. One great way to find “other-thinking” talent is through a proven personality assessment. I recommend PrinciplesYou from Ray Dalio. You can take it for free online to discover more about yourself and the traits required for other team members who think differently than you. Remember, you don’t get harmony when everyone sings the same note!
