What sets extraordinary teams apart from the rest? Yes, extraordinary teams have the ability to achieve tangible results. But what makes them so spectacular is that they do something ordinary teams cannot: They cultivate an exciting, collaborative environment that’s built upon mutual trust, respect, and engagement. As team members, individuals experience a positive personal change—and that means your organization reaps the benefits of better team performance and employees with increased skills, connections, loyalty, and enthusiasm for their work.
Join authors Kathleen Ryan and Kevin Coray for a valuable exploration of extraordinary teams and what makes them tick. You’ll look through the lens of exceptional teaming and learn how to lead, facilitate, and coach teams to their highest potential. In addition, you’ll gain insight about your behavior as an individual team member and how it can boost your team’s performance.
