ONE Team is better than one Person
Marvel’s, The Avengers, featuring Iron Man, Captain America, the Hulk, and Thor is not just inspiring for comics fans. There’s a huge lesson about teamwork you might not have paid attention to. Not just teamwork, but the value of teams themselves.
The Avengers’ lesson is that ONE is better than one, meaning that one team is better than one person. It is universally different from five people versus one person. A group of five can probably accomplish more than one person alone, but it’s when those five people work together as a team when the magic happens.
The hard part is to encourage those five individuals to put their egos aside, trust each other, and act as a team. Captain America and Iron Man have a very different view of the world, and compromise doesn’t come easy. They respect and trust one another despite their disagreements, and they see the value the other brings to the table. The abandonment of ego is what allows us to become part of a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.
