Increasingly, organizations count on project teams to develop products and deliver services to their customers. Consequently, effective teamwork and team leadership are integral components of an organization’s success. In 9 Powerful Practices of Really Great Teams, Stephen E. Kohn and Vincent D. O’Connell define the essence of superior performance by project teams at work, and identify nine attributes of team membership and team leadership that set the stage for accomplishment of group objectives. Kohn and O’Connell bring these proven strategies to life with real-world examples drawn from decades of experience.
"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."Dr. Laila El Sayed, project engineer, Dupont iTechnologies
"The 9 Powerful Practices of Really Great Bosses provides an excellent training model that a manager can both fully appreciate and easily implement."Raymond G. Steitz, senior v.p. of human resources, Olam Americas
