What you can expect from this book: 1.A template to help you build, or rebuild your team after a merger, acquisition, reorganization or downsizing process 2.A template to help the Team Leader who has just been promoted to leading a high-performance team 3.Numerous, simple yet highly effective tips and techniques to help you facilitate highly participative, input-driven team meetings and discussions resulting in higher levels of team motivation 4.A detailed set of coaching activities that can be implemented by you when faced with a demotivated and/or underachieving team The primary focus of this book is to help Team Leaders, reap the benefits of having a collection of individuals work together in a highly effective, productive manner to meet business goals and objectives. The primary application of the skills and strategies in this book are for “natural” teams – that is, a collection of individuals that make up a business unit that report to a Team Leader. In many organizations, the term “Team Leader” is synonymous with the Supervisor or Manager position. However, if you do not lead a “natural” team, this book will help the Project Manager in a matrix environment where team members (that do not directly report to the Project Manager) are pulled together, for a pre-defined period of time to create a product or service. Furthermore, if you are asked to lead a task force, steering committee, focus group, strategic planning initiative, legislated committee (i.e. Health & Safety Team) or some other special “team” that necessitates a group of people to work together toward a common goal, this book will detail the core activities that are required to build, maintain, and if necessary, repair this team. No matter what type of business-related team you lead, this book is designed to help you take your team’s motivation and performance to the next level – that is, to the level of what I refer to as a high-performance team.
