B-players on the team are important!
The best athletes never win alone. Only one athlete scores the goal, but the passing before the goal made it happen.
The Michael Jordan documentary highlights that a Big A surrounded by Bs can perform but not win the big one. The coach (leader) changed the focus. He recognised the bias and gave permission. B’s stepped up to A’s.
B’s have a role to play to make every high performance team hum. Check your B's. An A squished to a B due to circumstance you can change is a missed opportunity. Know who you have, know what they do, and give permission to step-up. Your team will hum.
