Newly updated and backed by decades of research, this classic guide will equip leaders and team members alike to unleash the power of teamwork.
Never before in the history of the workplace has the concept of teamwork been more important to the functioning of successful organizations. Legendary management guru Ken Blanchard along with teammates Donald Carew and Eunice Parisi-Carew have updated their classic work on fostering high performance teams for the 21st century. They explain how all groups move through four stages of development on their way to becoming high performing teams--orientation, dissatisfaction, integration, and production, and show how any manager or leader can help any group to become fully effective quickly and with minimal stress. This updated edition includes a new introduction, extensive text revisions, and newly designed diagrams and charts.
