Superheroes are often depicted as brooding, lonely types but, when faced with challenges unlike any other, they find strength in numbers. Teamwork is a superpower in its own right. It centres on knowing your own strengths, and knowing when the strengths of others can lift you when you are weak.
You're going to use it...
Just by choosing to use your superpower of teamwork today, we can tell you’re built different. Which is perfect, because the community most in need of your skills right now is the one made up of builders.
You might not have considered taking your talents to the trades, but teamwork is the superpower people in the construction industry tell us is the most valued today.
This isn’t a case of how many sparkies does it take to change a lightbulb. Instead, the construction industry is facing up to and taking on many of the biggest challenges in front of society.
Developing affordable housing, overcoming supply chain issues, equity in the trades. Kapow. Even we’re thinking about picking up a hammer.
But it’s not all about being on site with tools in hand. We’ve already worked with businesses in the construction industry, we’ve seen the power of teamwork, and we know just how much value comes from teams with a wide range of skills.
We can’t realise the future without bringing those skills to the fore, and the construction industry can’t play their part without the superpower of teamwork.
Our superpower stories are taken out of our 2022 Imagination in Business survey where we explored the potential of imagination through New Zealand's business leaders.
The survey included a series of questions focused on the skills people saw as being valued the most by their business today, those which should be valued most, and those which would be most important over the next decade. The conclusion of your superpower story on this page is based on the findings of that research.
In the story of using your superpower tomorrow, the scene is the industry where people told us that skill would be important over the next ten years.
