As the end of Round 16 commenced yesterday with Argentina playing Switzerland and Belgium facing the USA, we wanted to discuss the importance of maximizing the diversity within your team through actively sharing expertise and knowledge.
Whatever industry you are in it is important to work together with your colleagues as a cross-functional team incorporating members from different areas of your business to take advantage of the diverse perspectives, backgrounds, skill sets and talents of various employees. Whilst it is also important in a team to have an appropriate balance between new employees who have lots of potential but not a lot of experience and more-accomplished individuals who can remain calm in challenging situations.
In football players with more experience of playing in high profile games such as Martin Demichellis and Yaya Toure often act as mentors to less experienced players like Jack Rodwell and Maltija Nastasic during the football league. Toure, 31 recently expressed that he would be only be too happy to pass on advice to Rodwell, 23 from the experiences he has gained playing in some of the top teams in Europe and Africa.
Toure was quoted as saying; “When you’ve played for a club like that it’s very important to talk with the young players and pass on your experience”. It was also recently reported in the media that the players in the Greece team turned down their World Cup bonuses and requested that the money to be used instead to build a new training centre for the team.
