Creating Effective Teams: A Guide for Members and Leaders is a practical guide for building and sustaining top-performing teams. Based on the author’s many years of consulting experience with teams in the public and private sectors, the Fourth Edition describes why teams are important, how they function, and what makes them productive. The author covers in depth the four stages of a team—forming, storming, norming, and performing—clearly illustrating the developmental nature of teams and describing what happens in each stage. Separate chapters are devoted to the responsibilities of team leaders and team members. Problems that occur frequently in groups are highlighted, followed by what-you-can-do sections that offer specific advice.
Real-life examples and questionnaires are used throughout the book, giving readers the opportunity for self-evaluation. Key Features Packed with straightforward strategies for building and supporting well-managed, high-performing teams, this book examines why teams are important, how they function, and what makes them productive. Discussions throughout the text focus on diversity within teams: how different ethnic and cultural groups may have differing perceptions of group interactions.
The book details specific strategies for respecting divergent beliefs
while remaining effective. Checklists and self-evaluations provide even
more information on the reader’s personal leader or team member style.
Research references provide readers with the theory and research
background for the practical, application-based material in the text.
