This is a simple yet very good book to read for anyone working often with teams. It helps one to understand the dynamics of teamwork and how to cope with different phases of team spirit and productivity. Strongly recommend this for all officeworkers and project members, as well as project managers.

Working with groups of people on a project...get this book! March 16 2010
By Teach2Me - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am a huge fan of Kenneth Blanchard's work, One Minute Manager Series. He has produced yet another great example of being an effective leader through Situational Leadership. Team Building is the most efective way to achieve high performance but team members can impede their own progress. This book is very detailed in providing steps for anyone working with teams. With so many different ideas and personalities to consider, I feel more confident to create committees and recognize "team behavior" by being prepared and responding appropriately.

Too much story-telling and not enough meat Dec 14 2014
By Darryl Kerkeslager - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are a few items of interest in this short book, but not enough to make it worth the short time it would take to read. Perhaps the most important theme of the book is that meeting leaders need to pay attention to the dynamics of the meetings. If you already knew this, then you might not have to read the book. If not, do so.

A central main theses is that team maturity, direction, and self-governance will progress through stages, or regress, but will always move through the stages in the same ordering: delegating, coaching, supporting, directing. However, this makes the assumption of a certain level of team continuity, and anyone who has coached a sport or led a software project can tell you that team membership changes constantly, and this will have a tremendous effect on the functioning level of the team.

Oddly enough, I have to say that at 118 pages, the book is too lengthy for the material it covers. In fairness, I read the first edition; the new version is somewhat longer.
