Alignment, Process, Relationships
A Simple Guide to Team Management
About the Book
Have you ever wondered why a group of remarkable individual performers can get together and fail as a team? You can have all the talent in the world, but if individuals do not share common goals, coordinate their efforts, and trust one another to carry their share of the load, then you don’t have a team. So how does a team manager bridge this divide between individual performance and team performance? It turns out they construct that bridge on three simple building blocks: team alignment, team process, and team relationships.
