How Teamwork Works is the most comprehensive book on work team dynamics to date. It makes explicit how to create and develop effective teamwork. Syer and Connolly show how a team discovers its identity, becomes self-regulating, and evolves to maximize its potential. They address: Relationships - how heightening the quality of relationships between team members optimizes performance. Complexity - how teams are complex systems. A project team of 20 members has 190 relationships and each member has a relationship to each other relationship. Contribution - how a conscious contribution to a shared purpose enhances motivation. Process - how interaction shapes the structure of the team's work life. Performance - how developing the team's identity improves and sustains high levels of performance.
