Description

Show your team how to chart its own course, evaluate its progress, and self-correct.

Many books talk about teamwork, but few address the actual process of creating and managing effective teams. You'll learn to approach teamwork as a journey with a beginning, middle, and satisfying And. Find out how to construct a blueprint to carry your team along.

Discover the two factors essential for well functioning teams: getting work done and building and maintaining the spirit and momentum of the team.

Frequently teams are built and challenged to work as a unit, but the team members aren't clear about what steps to take and when to take them. Keep your team from becoming confused, frustrated and ultimately giving up. Develop step-by-step proceedures to get work done!

You'll learn these ten steps:


* Focusing the team
* Assigning roles
* Establishing guidelines
* Planning the work
* Doing the work
* Reviewing team performance
* Completing the work
* Publishing the results
* Rewarding the team
* Moving on


Create teams that work together to increase productivity, improve quality, and achieve high levels of customer satisfaction.
