Synopsis

Workplace teams are supposed to harness employees' talents to tackle challenges. But the reality often falls short...

Now imagine having a team where everyone steps up and performs all of the leadership tasks. Imagine a team that is constantly sharing knowledge and pushing the envelope--one that does long term planning and produces outstanding performance.

A Team of Leaders shows readers how to design systems that nurture the leadership potential of every employee--the key to creating high-performance teams. The book's proven principles and techniques include:

● The Five-Stage Team Development Model that maps the transition from traditional to self-directed teams

● Best practices in team process design

● A Team Value Creation Tool that allows members to appreciate the significance of what they contribute each day

● Visual Management

● And more

Filled with real-world examples, this fresh approach transforms passive groups of disparate people into effective teams of leaders--workplace teams that work!

Excerpt

How do you create an environment that successfully addresses the many challenges that supervisors and employees deal with while producing outstanding performance? The answer is simple: You have to create an environment where everyone is a leader. That is, an environment where everyone works together, takes the initiative, assumes ownership, is willing to deal with difficult issues, and accepts accountability for the team’s results; an environment that is in stark contrast with one in which the supervisor tries to get everyone to produce.

This is a fundamental change in the way that most work entities operate. However, as we will show you, such a workplace design will produce better performance and make your work life much more exciting, enjoyable, and fulfilling.

You may think it sounds like a bunch of management buzzwords, concepts that are good in theory but virtually impossible to implement . . .
