"Most comprehensive on addressing team dysfunctions. Saves time not reading many books to find an integrated approach"
Outstanding read. Practical application supported by the concept
Team composition needs not fully addressed, which is ok. Focus of the book is in addressing team dysfunctions.
No matter the size, if you manage a team, this is a must read.
I have more 10 years in a leadership role and currently running a startup growing fast. Go on, it's a no brainer buy :)
I have recommended this to other co-workers. It was originally suggested for reading from one of our company's unit managers. I have enjoyed hearing about these principles. I preferred the general overview at the end rather than the whole story.
I enjoyed the book. I appreciated the storytelling method in the beginning. It's easy to relate to ideas and philosophies you can associate to characters and situations. I also enjoyed the summary of the principles at the end of the book. This will make for good discussion using the material provided and assist team-building efforts. However, I think the end of the book would have been more beneficial had the tips for each dysfunction been tied back to the story in the beginning of the book. Otherwise I would highly recommend it to other organizations and will continue to use this with my team in the future.
It was easy to listen to, extremely insightful, and very practical. The author not only creates compelling characters, but also demonstrates phenomenal coaching techniques along with vivid illustrations of the team dysfunctions that we can all relate to.
A winning team puts the team's mission ahead of their department or personal advancement. Must read for executive and those who want to be!
This book was a well-written reminder of the business communications and ethics courses taught in colleges today. While the story offered little to no "ahha" moments or truly salient points that were indispensable take-aways; the book did, however, places the story in a an organized format to get you to reach conclusions about scenarios before the story reached them. In short, the book was a nice fresher, but nothing truly new here.
