Teams that Lead: A Matter of Market Strategy, Leadership Skills, and Executive Strength
Teams That Lead: A Matter of Market Strategy, Leadership Skills, and Executive Strength strikes a balance between the current scholarly literature that exists in these fields and its impact on teams. The focus on leading executive teams makes this book unique. It provides three lenses with which to view team leadership and how those various lenses can assist in making teams more effective. The first focuses on paying close attention to the market strategy of the organization and how it should drive key decisions. The second focuses on the multiple roles of the designated leader of a team. The third focus shifts to executive teams and how to be a highly effective team player in the executive environment.
Each section is grounded in theoretical and empirical evidence. How this information can then be translated into useful knowledge for practitioners and researchers follows. To make it practical, however, the book provides examples, cases, measuring tools, and questions. This book will be of interest to students and professors in MBA programs, organizational behavior, public policy, and psychology courses. Practitioners, such as consultants, facilitators, trainers, and executive coaches will also be interested.
