Getting the right people and the right chemistry 

is more important than the right idea.

“
THE SMARTEST LEADERS
KNOW THAT IT’S THEIR TEAM
THAT MAKES THEM
SUCCESSFUL
SUCCESSFUL
You’ll work hard to avoid any conflicts, to make sure everyone holds 

each other accountable, and that people are fully using their strengths.
WORKING WELL TOGETHER.
As a leader, you spend a lot of your time making sure that your team is
The secret to a high-performing team is if everyone
TRUSTS EACH OTHER.
Like any relationship, when there is a
strong level of trust, collaboration will be
strong too. The foundation of a good
team (like any relationship) is that
everyone is comfortable enough with
each other to do good work.

They can challenge each other without
fear of retribution, they can share ideas
without the fear of being called stupid,
and they can help each other get better
without embarrassment.
Google’s project Aristotle 

is one of the coolest pieces
of research about what
makes a good team.
A team of people inside Google’s People Operations
department studied many teams at Google to see what
made them work well with each other.
Google learned that there are five key things that make
for a successful team:
1
How comfortable do you feel taking risks
on this team without feeling insecure or
embarrassed?
PSYCHOLOGICAL 

SAFETY
2
Can you depend on your teammates and
hold them accountable?
DEPENDABILITY
3
Are goals and roles clearly defined?
STRUCTURE 

AND CLARITY

4
Is everyone on the team working
on something that is personally
important to each of them?
MEANING 

OF WORK
5
Do you believe that the work
you’re doing matters?
IMPACT OF
WORK
They found that the first item, psychological safety,
was by far the most important on the list. 



Without it, the other four don’t matter.

Have you ever held back from sharing anything at
work because you were worried about how people
might react to it?
We all try to avoid any situation that will affect how
our coworkers and managers perceive us.
In their research, they found that the safer team
members felt with each other, the better they did in
almost every area of work. They were:
MORE LIKELY TO
OWN UP TO THEIR
MISTAKES
1
BETTER PARTNERS TO
THEIR COLLEAGUES
2
LESS LIKELY TO
LEAVE GOOGLE
3
MORE LIKELY TO
BE OPEN TO
DIVERSE IDEAS
4
FEELING OF

SAFETY
So, how do we create that
on the team?
TRUSTTRUST
is earned and built over time, and you’ll only get
trust from others if you give it first.
Here are some tips on how I would build trust on the team:
1
Share a big mistake you made, or a time
that you were confused or embarrassed to
share work.

Showing that you’re vulnerable and are
willing to open up will set the tone for others
to open up.
BE A ROLE MODEL
2
You need to work hard to make sure
that no one is scared of sharing
anything.

Remind employees that it’s okay to
fail and make mistakes, it’s about
learning.
REMOVE THE
FEAR
3
When something goes wrong, instead of asking
“who did this?”, ask “what can we learn from this?”
Work with everyone to figure out what happened
and find a way so it doesn’t happen again (better
documentation, more thorough checklist, etc.)
STOP BLAMING
4
As a leader, you need to be mindful of the
fact that not everyone learns the same way,
not everyone is interested in the same
things, and not everyone is as
knowledgeable as you.
EMPATHIZE
Researchers at MIT and Carnegie Mellon have
discovered that similar to individual I.Q., teams have
their own collective intelligence.
“Collective intelligence is significantly correlated to
group composition, and is higher with a higher
concentration of females in the group.”
According to the authors of the study:
Its main predictors are
- social sensitivity

- the distribution of conversational turn-taking

- the proportion of female group members
Women generally perform better on measures of
social sensitivity, which makes women more
valuable in the workplace.
If you want an effective team
HIRE MORE
WOMEN
Build an environment where teams are comfortable
sharing things with each other. As team members
feel secure with each other they’ll work better
together.
