The Failure of High Achievers and Performers while Working as a Team.

The high achievers collaborating as a team often lies in the clash of individual brilliance versus collective synergy. While these individuals excel in their respective domains, the transition to a team setting can reveal unexpected challenges. One notable stumbling block is the struggle for leadership, as each member is accustomed to being the driving force in their individual pursuits. This internal power dynamic can lead to conflicts, hampering the team's ability to establish a unified direction. Moreover, the very traits that contribute to the success of high achievers—ambition, independence, and a strong desire for personal recognition—can inadvertently hinder effective communication and collaboration within the team. The result is often a breakdown in teamwork, as ego clashes and a failure to appreciate diverse perspectives impede the collective progress.


Challenge & Solution

To overcome the pitfalls of high achievers working as a team, DCI offers has its own way to solve this problem, such as.

1. Brain Color Mismatch: The Colored Brain model highlights how individuals process information differently. If a high-achieving individual's Colored Brain type doesn't complement those of the team, misunderstandings or miscommunications can occur.

2. Pyramid of Commitment: The levels in this pyramid can vary among team members, affecting the collective group's success. High achievers may be at a level of 'Leadership' or 'Ownership,' but if the team is operating at 'Conformity' or 'Doubt,' the gap could hinder team performance.
