In the famous Jack Rabbit Slims Restaurant scene in Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction, Vincent Vega (John Travolta) and Mia (UmaThurman) discuss her role in the TV pilot Fox Force Five.
This fictional show is referenced across the Quentin Tarantinoverse, and describes a female hit squad with complimentary skills.
The scene goes like this…
We all had special skills. Somerset had a photographic memory, the Japanese fox was a Kung Fu master, the African girl was a demolition expert, the French fox' specialty was a femme fatale.
Vincent: What was your specialty?

There is also more to building this crack team than simply finding the strongest personalities in your workplace.
According to Bill Gross of Idealab:
“I believe that every company needs a strong senior team to be successful, however, I feel that “strong” needs to be complemented by “different.” If the senior team has the same views, or is too close to one another, I feel there will not be enough thoughtfulness on both strategy and execution towards success.”
He goes on to say that finding those diverse skills and strengths is not an easy task, yet it is vital to find and use those different viewpoints. Not only that, but to integrate those views into better decisions.
Over hundreds of startups and business innovations, Bill Gross has seen how assembling a high functioning, diverse team of talent works time and again. “I have seen this type of teamwork matter more than the idea, more than the timing, and even more than the capitalization of the company, and thus I believe it is one of the most, if not the most critical factors in success.”
