You might have heard that there is this tiny, little sporting event going on at the moment… which made me think of “the better leg” theory:
The concept is that everybody is better at something on the soccer field, and you need to understand what all your teammates are fabulous at — what their better leg is — so that you can put them in a situation where they can use their best skill. It works the other way around too, with people focussing on how to make you better.
“The essence of great management: Focus on the individual strengths in your team and make them play together!”
That’s the essence of great teams. Great teams formed by great managers. Teams which go on and win.
Figure out what your better leg is. And what your teammates better leg is. Bring it all together in one, wonderfully executed play.
