The key to successful group workadmin
Many of us spend big portions of our working lives in some form of group effort. But when it comes to recognizing — and rewarding — the most valuable players, employers can fall flat. Many assume that superstars — the most talented players — are the critical ingredient for success. But, according to research from Harvard, we should also keep an eye on those with strong social skills. The researchers found that a team member’s social intelligence contributes to group performance nearly as much as IQ. Such participants provide the critical social glue to keep projects moving along and participants on board.
