Just as compilation of notes doesn’t make a symphony or a bunch of words doesn’t necessarily make a bestseller, likewise, high performing individuals coming together do not guarantee they will create a high performing team. Individual players working alone cannot compare with the elegance or effectiveness of a well-oiled team dedicated towards a common purpose.
Research has shown that whether in the world of sports or the world of investment banking, individual performance travels poorly across teams. It takes NBA players an average of 21 games with a new team to recover their pre-transfer performance. A group of Harvard researchers discovered that 46% from a sample of 1,052 high-performing investment analysts were unable to replicate their outstanding performance when they move to a different investment bank.
This evidence supports the notion that people succeed not only through their own raw talent and capacity, but also by building on the support structure and team ecosystem around them. As football legend Pelé said, “The team is the winner or loser, not the player. A team is not made up of isolated individuals. No one plays alone. Success depends on your whole team being a single unit.”
