Publisher Comments:

How to Lead Work Teams Facilitation Skills, Second Edition is a completely revised and updated resource that shows you how to develop the skills that are key for becoming a successful team leader. Step by step, author Fran Rees shows you how to develop the powerful facilitation skills that will help make you an outstanding team leader, coach, motivator, and facilitator. This hands-on book is filled with proven tools, techniques, and skills that can be learned today and put into action tomorrow! Using Rees's innovative L.E.A.D. model you can become a team leader who:

* Leads with a clear purpose. Articulate your team's goals and purpose and encourage open and thoughtful discussion (including disagreement), brainstorming, and active listening.

* Empowers to participate. Encourage team members to communicate in ways that enhance teamwork and achieve results.

* Aims for consensus. Reach consensus by taking the time for questioning, listening, clarifying, augmenting, summarizing, and documenting.

* Directs the process. Lead the process of communication both inside and outside your team.

"The new edition hits the nail on the head. Every employee who works as a member of a team needs to learn facilitation skills. How to Lead Work Teams explains and describes skills and practical techniques in a very readable way." --Judith C. Tingley, president, Performance Improvement Pros, Inc. "An indispensable resource in our work culture, where we train and encourage all people to lead and make a difference. How to Lead Work Teams provides insightful approaches and clear instructions for facilitating that make it a valuable tool for managers, team leaders, and, indeed, all employees." --Tom Baily, training and development consultant, Medtronic, Tempe, Arizona "Fran Rees identifies the key ingredients for leaders and teams to work together effectively and efficiently in teams. This book is an invaluable resource full of ideas, creative solutions, and practical applications. " --Pris Ronan, president, Life Design, Inc., and owner, Strategic Learning Solutions "As leaders are having to deal with greater degrees of uncertainty and ambiguity, it is imperative for them to adopt a more facilitative style. Fran Rees has updated her original classic, How to Lead Work Teams, which provides an insightful and very practical approach to helping leaders become more facilitative and purposeful in their role." --Douglas Reid, president, Douglas Reid & Associates The Author Fran Rees is the owner of Rees & Associates, a Phoenix-based training and consulting firm. In the year 2001, her consulting firm celebrates her fifteenth year in business. Since the publication of the first edition of How to Lead Work Teams: Facilitation Skills in 1991, Fran has increasingly focused her work on team development, team leadership, and facilitator training, and consults to a variety of organizations. She designs and facilitates meetings for both public and private organizations and has conducted numerous management development, workforce diversity, mentoring, and train-the-trainer programs.

Book News Annotation:

While the first edition of this guide, published in 1991, focused on making the transition from "manager" to "team leader," this latest edition explores the idea of leading teamwork in dynamic, change- driven organizations. The need for facilitative leaders is greater now because managers are working in faster-paced arenas, in more volatile markets, with fewer precedents and greater consequences. The guide is intended for team leaders, project managers, HR professionals, organization consultants, trainers, and anyone who must take a leadership role to get their job done. Rees is a Phoenix-based consultant who specializes in team development, team leadership, and facilitation training.

The book is extremely good, and covers all aspects of an effective team management, however little bit coverage?s on team coordination and understanding if explicitly explained could have added more value to the book.

Anyhow there may be limitation on the part of the authors.
My congratulation to both publisher and author for bring out such an excellent book.
Please send me a complimentary copy to review and for further references.
