Here’s the primary structure from which The Secret of Teams by Mark Miller begins a journey which will teach you more about people and teams than a graduate course at any university.
A team …
“… a small group of people working together toward a common goal … characterized by trust and mutual accountability .. . achieve more together than they could working as individuals.”
A high-performance team …
“… results far exceeded what would be expected… enabled leaders to increase effectiveness … fostered significant growth among individual team members.”
The secret of high-performance teams …
High performance teams focus on three critical factors …
Talent … “… people who are a good fit …”
Skills … “… set of behaviors that can be taught and learned.”
Community … “ … a place where people know each other deeply, serve each other willingly, and care for one another genuinely.”
I could elaborate on this excellent consideration of teams and how they work well, but I believe that the author’s words are more powerful than any I could add.
Reflecting on what this all means for my leadership of teams in the Heartland ….
Mark Miller, well known business leader, best-selling author, and communicator, is excited about sharing The Secret of Teams: What Great Teams Know and Do with those who are ready to grow. You can find it on Amazon and in bookstores everywhere.
Disclaimer: I was given a copy of this book for review. Since I could easily justify the cost of buying at least one, if not several copies, I am ahead of the game. If you buy the book, you will be too … promise.
