What are today's teams really like, and why are they failing? In their new book, authors Harvey Robbins and Michael Finley explain what they see as the reason: teams fail largely because they don't think through the human implications of teaming.
The New Why Teams Don't Work is as much about people as it is about business. This handbook will help team members and leaders maintain the highest level of social and emotional intelligence by making them more aware of their own needs, conflicts, and peculiarities.
Among the new chapters are ""Collaboration vs. Teamwork"", ""Team Balance"", ""The Death of Teamwork"", ""The Team of One"", and ""Teams at the Top"".
As much about people as it is about business, this down-to-earth book by two experts in the field of teamwork has been substantially updated throughout--with eight new chapters, including ""Dealing with Difficult People"" and ""The Myth that Sports Teams and Work Teams are Similar"".
