In his book Dream Teams, author Shane Snow sets out to illustrate why some diverse teams excel and some do not. His early chapters emphasize perspective and how the addition of new and different perspectives to a team can help the group uncover ideas or solutions they never could have before. He uses the illustration of a mountain range. If everyone starts hiking the range from the same starting point, you may all get to a peak, look around and say “we’ve done it, we’re at the summit.” But, if someone else starts hiking the same range from the other side, they may come to a taller, more stunning mountain that you never even knew existed. This, he argues, is one of the aspects that makes some teams great. They look for people with perspectives not like theirs who can start tackling an issue at a completely different angle, ultimately bringing everyone to a better, stronger solution.
