It is dangerous for an organisation to solicit competition between members of the same group. Competition in a team prevents cooperative success…
the biggest danger that organisations face is very often not the threat from without, it is the destructive effect of competition between members of the team or functions and departments within the organisation.
Now I would hazard to say that the only person who can make a meaningful and helpful contribution to the world that they’re in is the cooperative person.
When people suspend their self-interest for the requirements of the team their demeanour is fundamentally co-operative.
