When it comes to achieving our goals when functioning in larger groups – may it be sport competitions, corporate initiatives or political decisions – there is no surprise that the collective success is down to every member of the team.
Sticking together is what brought us this far as a species. But equally the heard mentality can limit what we can achieve by setting the boundaries of what is socially acceptable. The paradox is within us – the need to stand apart and to belong. Carving a path and having people follow. Is how leaders are born.
