Additional Book Details

A practical guide for building and sustaining top-performing teams  

Based on the authors' many years of consulting experience with teams in the public and private sectors, Creating Effective Teams: A Guide for Members and Leaders describes why teams are important, how they function, and what makes them successful. The texts covers the four stages of team development —forming, storming, norming, and performing— to help readers effectively navigate these different phases. Separate chapters are devoted to the responsibilities of team leaders and team members. Susan A. Wheelan, Maria Akerlund, and Christian Jacobsson highlight common problems that occur frequently in groups as well as provide practical tips, real-life examples, and questionnaires to help address those problems. The Sixth Edition includes a new Chapter 11 on Changes in Team Functioning explores the benefits and challenges of working on fluid teams, self-managed teams, agile teams, virtual teams, and multicultural teams. A significantly revised Chapter 12 highlights the latest research on the integrated model of group development.
