Welcome Team Builders!

Welcome Team Builders!

Are you getting full value from your investment in teams? Probably not. Many organizations jump on the teamwork bandwagon only to fall off soon after hitting some rocks.

Do you find that:

Team meetings take forever and get nowhere

Resistance and conflict develop among the players

Many of your teams bog down or self-destruct

Yet books, articles and conferences proclaim startling results from teams. You would be wise to ask, Are these stories for real?

The answer is a clear and solid yes! You can derive great benefits by applying high-performance team dynamics to projects and short-term assignments. But this process isn’t instant, automatic or risk-free. Better questions to ask would be, Will the team approach work in my situation? If so, Will it be worth what I need to invest to make it work? If yes, then, How do I launch the team as quickly as possible yet insure it succeeds?

These questions explain the purpose of this book. In the following pages, you’ll find answers that will help you deploy project teams for maximum impact.

Good teams are careful about defining roles. Since we want to practice what we preach, let’s be clear about whom this book is intended for.

  • Senior managers considering cross-functional team programs

  • Mid-managers wanting to launch project teams and accelerate results

  • Leaders who chair team meetings and manage projects

  • Facilitators who guide the process and coach everyone involved

Whoever you are, if you work with teams, you’ll benefit from what’s presented here.
