From the Inside Flap:

From instincts as ancient as our hunter-gatherer stages, human beings have worked in teams. But what have we really learned about what drives us to cooperate and collaborate with each other? Does all of the selfishness and scandal in business and government today suggest we have spilt the special sauce of teamwork?

Doing More with Teams explores what can be done to encourage a new form of competition so that organizations complete the challenges before them to drive growth and get results. It offers a new premise for the idea of teamwork and challenges the perception that individualism is the only way to wealth. Through real-life and historical examples of teams that have inspired awe, this book lays out a solid set of principles that work for all kinds of teams, including:

  • How aging teaches us the value of teams as a source of meaningfulness in life
  • How to establish clear principles that call for shared responsibility throughout an organization
  • How to avoid individual motivators that undermine the importance of teams
  • The costs of an excessive expectation of ceaseless victory
  • Why the best team captains are those who quickly and accurately assess team members' capabilities—and figure out how that affects the group

Doing More with Teams enlightens the world to a new, more ethical, more collaborative way forward and shows us how best to tap into the magic of teamwork.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Doing More with Teams

"Bruce Piasecki might well be the most interesting writer in the field of business today, in large part because he brings the perspective of a humanist with broad literary training to the table, as in this compelling book about working in teams. Only together do we, as the human race, move forward. This is true in all aspects of life but especially in business. An inspired and inspiring book."
—JAY PARINI, author of The Last Station

"Everyone involved in creating exceptional teams should read Bruce Piasecki's stunning new book. This is the most fun and fundamental business and society book I've read in decades. Doing More with Teams is skillfully narrated, with plenty of spice for corporate, military, and sports teams. With warmth and wit, he describes the power of teamwork and high performance—and once again, Bruce adds a sense of magic to it. Piasecki offers us an amazing read that opens our mind as it empowers our actions."
—COLONEL JOHN MOGGE (USAF Retired), SVP, CH2MHILL
