Not just another theoretical book about teams, The Driving Force is a guide to making teams work through the integration of theory and practical application provided by hands-on examples broken into three sections: I. Team Basics; II. Types of Teams; III. Team Toolkit. This book is written for those who have worked with teams before with less than optimal results, and for those who believe in teams but don't knonw where to begin. Here, the author shows how to leverage the skills, talents, and interests of employees to maximize collaboration and performance. The fact is, teams are everywhere and a part of the fabric of everyday life, whether on the soccer field or in a corporate structure. Done well, teams inspire and motivate; done poorly, they lead to disappointment and failure. The Driving Force takes the life-long lessons learned by Nancy Brown-Johnston and her colleagues and helps the reader to improve the success rate of teams in all environments.Brown-Johnston, Nancy is the author of 'Driving Force Lessons In Teamwork From Saturn And Other Leading Companies', published 2004 under ISBN 9780975263808 and ISBN 0975263803.
