Think One Team: An Inspiring Fable and Practical Guide for Managers, Employees and Jelly Bean Lovers
DescriptionEvery day around the world, thousands of organisations irritate customers, frustrate employees and lose countless opportunities because of one simple reason: they don’t think and act as one team. Sound familiar?
Sydney, Australia. At O’Donnell’s Jelly Bean Company, life isn’t so sweet. Between communication breakdown, staff turnover and the dreaded ‘silo’ syndrome, morale is at an all-time low and the company’s outlook is grim. How will the staff at O’Donnell’s overcome these hurdles to unite and save the company?
In Think One Team, Graham Winter weaves a fun and engaging business fable into a practical model that unlocks the power of teamwork across boundaries, empowering organisations to realise the possibilities that come from thinking and acting as one team.
This book will inspire and guide you and your colleagues to:
- share the big picture not pursue separate agendas
- share the reality not avoid and deny
- share the air not stifle communication
- share the load not protect your own turf
- share the wins and losses not play I win, you lose.
