Why Veterans And Rookies Make For A Powerful Team
In her new book, Rookie Smarts, author Liz Wiseman explains the benefits of having both veteran employees and new employees (rookies) on a team. The four main benefits are:
- The veteran brings clarity and gravitas while the rookie brings energy and determination.
- The veteran sees the potential and promise of the novel ideas of the rookie.
- The veteran knows how the world works and guides the entrepreneur who wants to change the world.
- When the disparate contributions of experience and naivete are appreciated, the combination sparks collective brilliance.
