Synopsis: As Al Pacino said in the first Godfather movie, '...let me make you an offer you can't refuse...' for within this book you will find team member skills and leadership skills distilled to their essence. Though there is a great deal that can be said on these two topics, the essential basics are no longer a mystery and are now out in the open for all to see and take advantage of.I became captive of this material early in my nearly thirty-eight year career in IBM where I worked in marketing, software and hardware product development, brand management, and services. I was concerned with what I saw inside IBM where the best and the brightest consistently failed to live up to their potential - and worked long hours to do so.I also became concerned by newspaper reports of conditions outside IBM that sounded familiar.During a period of major growth in productivity, organizations struggling to get or remain profitable.Middle managers finding themselves with too much to do, to many demands, and unable to do all that they know is important.Lower level, non-management employees fearing there is no career path, no pension, no continuing health care, and no way out. It sounded like increasingly like the business world was approaching a sweatshop mentality.Polarization of superficially different views on almost every subject in our society.I had a deep belief that all the resources were already present - human and other - to do much better than was evident on the evening TV news. There had to be a way for people to work better together and to be more effectively led.I was most fortunate to be in a position to observe, experiment, brainstorm and discuss ideas with kindred souls, and eventually discover what was in front of us all the time like a purloined letter. My intuitive sense gave me the patience, interest and energy to discover the obvious - no one had crawled inside teams and asked what was needed from the viewpoint of the people involved.Once I had sorted out the team proce

About the Author: Ken Boggs retired from IBM Corporation after nearly thirty-eight years in a range of management and professional assignments. His career spanned the creation of ubiquitous large system computing, international information systems networks, the Internet, and the accreditation of project management. Ken is a certified project manager and a qualified Myers-Briggs consultant. He has worked with small teams and some very large ones while managing projects up to $5M in value. Ken currently is a project management mentor and provides selective consulting and Myers-Briggs counseling. Ken is married to Mary Lucas, physical therapist and yoga teacher, and lives in rural Chatham county North Carolina. When he is not working with teams, Ken is an avid putterer - building on his ten acres of pine and hard woods, gardening, operating an amateur radio station KB4RV, exercising and doing yoga, playing backgammon, singing folk songs and playing guitar, and enjoying his growing entourage of grandchildren.
