A fact most sports fans learn when they observe players who move teams – fit within a team matters almost as much as individual ability.
Many players perform phenomenally within one team and struggle to replicate that performance when they move elsewhere. Or vice versa.
Every once a while, we see great players who transcend this and perform – regardless of their surroundings. But, they’re the exceptions that prove the rule.
Applies just as well in our careers – especially so as roles get senior.
It is worth solving for fit.
