Teams are everywhere - business, industry, schools, hospitals and government. There are executive, management and cross-functional teams, as well as teams formed for specific tasks and projects. But when a team can succeed or fail on the quality and effectiveness of its leader, everyone will have a view on the leadership qualities that are most important. So what makes a successful team? And what can leaders do to ensure that their teams collaborate effectively and are committed to the right goals? The Leadership of Teams examines some of the most common challenges facing both teams and leaders, including: · interpersonal challenges; · working in a global context; · different roles in different teams; · multicultural teams; and · coaching and developing team members. Written by experienced academics and practitioners, The Leadership of Teams incorporates results from specially-commissioned surveys on team-working, organized by Ashridge Business School. Using examples from sport, the military, business and the charity sector, this book shows how the best leaders successfully inspire, support and work with their teams in order to produce peak performance.
