Synopsis: "High Five! "combines the spellbinding charm of a timeless parable with cutting-edge information about why teams are important and what individuals and organizations can do to build successful ones.Through the story of Alan Foster, a workplace one-man band, " High Five!" identifies the four key ingredients of winning teams. Although Alan is an effective producer, he is unwilling to share the spotlight by partnering on projects and is fired because, as his boss puts it, "Alan, we need good producers who are "good team players, " too." It is a bitter pill for him to swallow.While mulling over his disappointment, he takes his son to his grade-five hockey practice, where it is clear that his son's team, the Riverbend Warriors, knows nothing about teamwork, either. When the team's two overworked coaches learn of Alan's plight, they persuade him to join their ranks, and he finds himself charged with teaching himself and the players the meaning of teamwork. With the help of a woman friend-a former girls' basketball coach who has "won more high school basketball championships than anyone"-Alan and the Warriors learn the magic of teamwork and that "none of us is as smart as all of us."With its simple style and easy-to-follow techniques, "High Five! "is a must-read for anyone seeking to learn the value and power of teamwork.
The Team Building Book for the 21st Century.
Ken Blanchard, author of the One Minute Manager, and his co-authors, do here for teamwork what Gung Ho! did for motivation and Raving Fans for Customer Service.
Using the entertaining and easily-digested parable style that made those books so successful, Blanchard et al have a simple but very powerful message to convey.
The story is about Alan, who gets fired, despite being highly successful, because of his lone wolf mentality. He breaks through his initial resistance to new ways of working by spending some of the new-found time on his hands coaching his son’s hockey team, and in the process learns all about the power of teamwork.
An inspirational guide to the art of working successfully together (and the power that derives from being part of a team), this is an invaluable read for anyone who has to work with other people, from one of the world’s most successful business authors.
