Book News Annotation:

The authors of The Carrot Principle and The Daily Carrot Principle continue to shatter myths of corporate achievement in this guide to building high-performing teams that work passionately together to pursue a shared vision. They rely on a study of 350,000 people by the Best Companies Group, plus research into exceptional teams at leading companies such as Pepsi and American Express, to outline a set of key characteristics displayed by members of breakthrough teams and identify rules that great teams live by. Trust, accountability, and recognition of team members' contributions are some of the guiding principles revealed. The book's two-color layout emphasizes points in orange, of course, the color of carrots. Gostick and Elton are affiliated with O. C. Tanner Company.
