Overview

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!
