Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships


The likes of Lionel Messi, Roger Federer, Sachin Tendulkar and many others are blessed with exceptional talents. But, they would not have been able to achieve half of what they have, had they not been good team players or possessed the intelligence to succeed. Almost all human beings are gifted with some talent but very few people’s talent prove to be sufficient for them to succeed.  

Given the world as it is, an inter-dependent web of countries, the emphasis seems to be on teamwork. While talent might go unnoticed and not yield success, the ability of a person to adjust to the dynamism of a team will hold him/ her in good stead since organisations today depend more on the collective power of groups to tackle complex problems rather than one talented person. This is because a group enables the coming together of a diverse talent pool which can be tapped to improve the results. Individual talent can create moments of brilliance but the collective strength of a team can consistently perform the things that matter and overcome individual limitations.   

Talent is undeniably an important factor in success. Without any talent, an individual might start at a disadvantage. However, for talent to translate into results, a suitable environment along with intelligence is necessary. A talented individual has his/her own limitations which might not let him reach his/her own full potential but a team, by pooling in multiple intelligences and resources, can overcome individual constraints easily. Also, talent amounts to nothing if the person does not use it judiciously. This is where an intelligent, talented person scores over a person with talent but no intelligence.  

The conflict between individual pursuits and team goals is difficult to settle. The team is always bigger than the individual. If the talented individual is unwilling to sacrifice for the good of the team, not just the team but the individual himself/herself suffers. In sports, in particular, a talented sportsman might win a few games but to win championships, the entire team needs to contribute. A united team working in one direction will become an indomitable force stronger than an individual. 

Thus, talent is nothing without the right opportunities, right environment, right team and intelligence, all of which together convert talent into achievement.
