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!
