Great teams understand their individual superpowers

Whilst researching all things SYPartners I stumbled across this quote from their Chairman and founder, Keith Yamashita:



Some of the first actions I took in my transformation of both me and my team were to print this out and stick it on the wall, put it on the agenda of our first team meeting, and work with my team to understand that we needed to learn about and embrace our individual superpowers* if we are going to become a ‘great team’.

* and yes, that did lead to sniggers and jokes involving underpants on the outside of clothes and references to lots of comic book characters! 

This is what we we’re going to work towards.

We were going to understand ourselves better.

We were going to make progress. 

We were going to become a great team.
