"I follow the 9 Powerful Practices of Really Great Teams model not simply because it works so well, but also because it is so sensible, so easily understood by team members, and so implementable. The book is impressive in how applicable it is to real situations, in real organizations, involving real team-building issues. I return to it often to get grounded once again in the core principles of teamwork that Kohn and O'Connell advocate."
