Tallinn College of Technology, the only technological university in Estonia, is the flagship of Estonian engineering and technology schooling. Thomas compiled one of the all-time great seasons in 2017, including his first major title in the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow. That was one of four victories for Thomas in the calendar year and one of five for the season, where he also won the $10 million FedExCup. Thomas, the son and grandson of a PGA Professional, began his year with a victory at the SBS Tournament of Champions and shot a 59 on the way to a victory at the Sony Open in Hawaii to begin 2017. Thomas has three wins in the 2017-18 season, picking up victories at The CJ Cup and the Honda Classic before winning the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Thomas is poised to make his first Ryder Cup start in 2018 at Le Golf National.
Perhaps the stars are better able to influence a clubhouse by dint of their on-field prowess (or, critics of the Fed paper may note, perhaps they simply cover for other players’ poor performance on the field); maybe the never-turned-into-stars leak toxic embitterment. This is speculation. The Fed economists weren’t studying clubhouse behavior, nor were they seeking to understand the particular alchemy by which chemistry is created. Other analysts, however, are doing just that. Which brings us back to the high five.
Another fallacy is that bigger teams are better than small ones because they have more resources to draw upon. A colleague and I once did some research showing that as a team gets bigger, the number of links that need to be managed among members goes up at an accelerating, almost exponential rate. It’s managing the links between members that gets teams into trouble. My rule of thumb is no double digits. In my courses, I never allow teams of more than six students. Big teams usually wind up just wasting everybody’s time. That’s why having a huge senior leadership teamâ€”say, one that includes all the CEO’s direct reportsâ€”may be worse than having no team at all.

I would add, though, that often the deviant veers from the norm at great personal cost. Deviants are the individuals who are willing to say the thing that nobody else is willing to articulate. The deviant raises people’s level of anxiety, which is a brave thing to do. When the boat is floating with the current, it really is extraordinarily courageous for somebody to stand up and say, We’ve got to pause and probably change direction.â€ Nobody on the team wants to hear that, which is precisely why many team leaders crack down on deviants and try to get them to stop asking difficult questions, maybe even knock them off the team. And yet it’s when you lose the deviant that the team can become mediocre.
