Hidden Figures Film Is A Great Case Study Of Success In Large Team Projects

Hidden Figures is a great film, full of the drama and suspense of a large information technology project (are there any others on the subject?).

Then Vs. Now

While that may sound a bit unbelievable, the film is a cool perspective on the similarities between large information technology projects 50 years ago and today. This article further parallels several noteworthy similarities between those lives and times, and current ones.

Tolerance And Inclusion

Ultimately, the film is an undisputable case study for tolerance, and acceptance of a more diverse workforce, as the most effective method for building high performance teams in professional organizations. NASA could not have become fit to fly and bring an astronaut home safely without every member of the team participating at full capacity. Significant hurdles had to be cleared before that was possible.

Hi, I’m Dylan Cornelius.
I was passed over for promotions four times in three years, every time passed over by a peer. My marriage was a wreck. I was obese and my doctor threatened to medicate me if I didn’t lose weight.
When I calculated the per-hour value of my overtime at work, the additional money in my bonus didn’t justify the costs to my health, relationships, and personal satisfaction.
After five years of hearing me complain, my brother told me to stop complaining or do something about it. I was stunned that it had been so long.
After a long and expensive search, I realized the quality of my relationships was poor and I wasn’t taking care of other people or myself.
When I committed to creating fantastic relationships and high-performing teams in every area of my life that mattered, my life transformed.
I was promoted. Now I’m picked to lead teams and frequently thanked for my contribution.
While my marriage didn’t survive, I met an amazing woman who trained me for my first two marathons, and now I do triathlons for fun. I lost 50 pounds and controlled my diet, allergies, and autoimmunity.
Now my “Honey Bunny” and I tour for weeks at a time on a tandem bike. Soon, we’ll cross countries and continents.
I created a Team Acceleration Blueprint based on my personal development journey and decades of education and experience building and leading teams at some of the best universities and companies on the planet.
I believe the world can work for everyone. It starts with clarity of purpose, fantastic relationships, and high-performing teams. I intend to help 10,000 people create an unfair advantage and achieve results they didn’t believe were possible too.
