Description

Successful team building in the workplace has more to do with making a success of the team you have been given, rather than building an ideal team from scratch. This eBook explains the core principles of team building that will help you get the best out of any team that you find yourself managing.

It uses three different teams to illustrate how these principles can be adapted to suit their differing needs. The examples are an I.T. project team, a support team and a high-level strategic team.

Preface

Successful team building in the workplace has more to do with making a success of the team you have been given, rather than building an ideal team from scratch. There are certain core principles of team building that will help you get the best out of any team that you find yourself managing.

You will learn how to apply these principles to:

  • A project team where even though you are not an expert in all of the technical aspects of the project you are still expected to coordinate the team’s efforts.
  • A support team where there are problems with motivation and high staff turnover.
  • A high-level strategic team where you do not have any direct authority over the other participants.
