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.
