Front Cover
HarperCollins Leadership, Nov 1, 2009 - Business & Economics - 128 pages
Talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships. This is true in sports, pop culture, and every other industry--including business. In this essential guidebook, New York Times bestselling author John C. Maxwell explains why teamwork is the heart of great achievement in the game of business and shows readers how to prioritize teamwork and collaboration to achieve winning results. You’ll learn how to: build a team that lasts; create positive energy on the team; harness a team's creativity; identify weak players who negatively impact your team; and judge if your team can accomplish the dream. You’ll also discover how a winning team is self-fulfilling fuel: because everyone wants to be part of the winning team, you’ll continue to attract only the best talent--and stay on top. A great team is the key to great results--for individual employees, leaders, and the company as a whole. Teamwork 101 demonstrates how to build and maintain one for yourself so you can leverage the benefits--and fun--of exceptional teamwork.
