Successful Teams have Common Personality Traits

What a great document to find from Harvard business review.

In summary the best teams have cognitive diversity and feel safe to explore and create. These are the teams that create the best work environment and produce results. My own research on the subject to next personality traits to successful teams and the results are very similar.

Matching diverse and skillful personality traits results in high performance teams. Often these teams are best because they’re nurtured from great executive teams as well. They don’t just happen.

Talent management teams can do a lot to balance where to place the right people. There are cases when you need safe teams that keep the lid down and focused.

Further research on this subject might indicate that emotions are not the drivers. Emotions are temporary states. Personality and more important traits are stable over long periods of time and are causal to why great teams exist.
