As a longtime fast food manager, I have to say that team building is one of the strongest traits a successful manager should have. Nothing says teamwork like trying to get a bunch of teenagers to work together toward a common goal (customer satisfaction)! This is a great book to read (listen to) to help you get to that personal professional goal of your own - that of building a team that works together like a well-oiled machine. I was impressed with some of the techniques brought forth here and I would recommend it to others who are looking for a few tips on how to build a strong, efficient, working team. It's important to remember that people are individuals first and foremost. Team leaders have to understand that and work with it.
Another thing I like about this book is the fact that you can get it on audio version instead of just the printed. I do a lot of driving and having it so readily available without straining my eyes is pretty cool.
I need these types of books for business. There are many books out there with advice for people in business who need help with their leadership and team building skills but this has to be one of the best. A lot of it is communication and learning to understand others in any type of business situation. Once you open your mind to the possibilities, you'll be able to build efficient and effective teams and being a good leader of that team. You'll see a great measure of success once you know how to put together a great team with everyone working together toward a common goal. I highly recommend this book!
If you have any kind of service or product, you are going to need to market it to let people know about it. Advertising is key when you have something for sale, whether it's a physical item or something you do for them. This is a wonderful resource tool to make your work simpler. Follow these tips to successful marketing. I recommend this book highly!
