Create a Winning Team: A practical guide to successful team leadership
As a team leader, do you believe you can make a real difference to the performance of your team? If you do, Create a Winning Team will help you do just that.
This book is a practical and commonsense guide to successful team working. It focuses on the skills that team leaders need to develop to work together effectively - unlike most books about team work, which focus on team building events and games , not the practical day to day challenges of getting great results.
With a straightforward, down to earth, no nonsense style avoiding unnecessary jargon and using concrete examples and case studies from young, high performing junior managers working in an international environment, the author covers the often practical actions a team leader can do that really make a difference and which you're unlikely to learn on a leadership course, like pitching in now and again and making people tea!
The content is built around a logical structure consisting of a set of questions e.g. What do teams do? How will your team succeed? How do you create a balanced team? The chapter headings themselves tell a clear story and stimulate the reader to continue.
