How Teamwork Works: The Dynamics of Effective Team Development
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.
