Why You Need Veterans And Rookies

In Team Building, Teams, teamwork on April 11, 2015 at 1:48 pm

In her 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:

  1. The veteran brings clarity and gravitas while the rookie brings energy and determination.
  2. The veteran sees the potential and promise of the novel ideas of the rookie.
  3. The veteran knows how the world works and guides the entrepreneur who wants to change the world.
  4. When the disparate contributions of experience and naivete are appreciated, the combination sparks collective brilliance.
