When individuals outgrow their team.

Cliche football analogy I realize, but this happens all the time in sport, business & life. If it has not happened to you in a management position yet, rest assured it will.
  1. individual is welcomed, embraced & empowered into a system
  2. receives the mentorship & guidance, and then suddenly.... 
  3. begins believing their own hype & press
  4. becomes smarter & better than the team mates, coaches & systems.
  5. throws them under the bus.
....and it all ends the same way. Sometimes there are things you can do to prevent it & sometimes there are not. This was a decent overview of what could and should have been done along the way from people who are/were very smart.
