Go Team!: Take Your Team to the Next Level
Effective teams are increasingly recognized as crucial to business success, but few people really understand how to build a team that taps and blends the skills of each member for a winning whole. In clear, simple language, Go Team! shows how to create that powerhouse team. The book begins by defining what constitutes a great team, using examples from real life. It details elements critical to using conflict effectively, making and implementing decisions, sharing leadership among members, and being accountable for results. The authors also explore the three stages of a change process to achieve greatness -- sowing seeds for change, dealing with discouragement, and preparing for takeoff -- as well as the three keys to empowerment to move the team through these stages: sharing information, creating autonomy through boundaries, and replacing the hierarchy with teams. This proven plan enhances creativity, satisfaction, and a sense of pride, ensuring outstanding results.
