It takes more than smart people to succeed. It takes smart people who have the interpersonal skills for creative collaboration



  • Groups that avoid conflict won't be able to face tough issues or handle the creative conflict that generates new ideas.

  • Groups that are highly competitive won't share ideas and build on other's ideas. People won't share the credit for success, further decreasing the chance for creative collaboration.

  • Groups that defer to a person of higher status will miss many good ideas, and fail to tap and develop the talents of the entire group.

  • Groups that haven't learned to work well together will take the first workable solution to avoid unsatisfying and uncomfortable interactions.
