Leadership expert John C. Maxwell follows his best-selling The Indisputable Laws of Teamwork with this powerfully succinct companion book, The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player. He presents a clear analysis of the personal characteristics necessary for becoming an effective team player. Maxwell's detailed descriptions and many examples are easy to understand and applicable whether at home, on the job, at church, or on the ball field.

Inside The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player, Maxwell outlines the successes of team players who have been:

  • Intentional- making every action count toward a long-term goal
  • Relational- focused on others
  • Selfless- willing to take a subordinate role for the sake of the team
  • Tenacious- hardworking and optimistic in the face of setbacks

Maxwell shows how these qualities, and many others, impact the team and its success. The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player is not feel-good platitudes and abstract thinking, but concrete actions designed to improve the value of every team player.

Review:

The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player is another in a long line of titles by John Maxwell aimed at helping people attain their personal and leadership potential in the workplace. The book is organized into short chapters, each devoted to one of the 17 qualities that Maxwell deems essential to a successful and harmonious workplace, qualities such as competence, discipline, adaptability, commitment, selflessness, and preparedness. Maxwell's prose reads like a series of sermons, peppered with inspirational stories and quotes from personalities as diverse as Vince Lombardi ("The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender") and Henry Ford ("Before everything else, getting ready is the secret of success"). The book is for Maxwell fans and anyone looking for a sensible and formulaic approach to improving their lot, both at work and in life. --Harry C. Edwards
