Leading Your Team
IN THIS SUMMARY
When people are expected to lead a team, often they wonder if they have what it takes, they are confused about where to start, they worry about how to handle people who were previously their peers, or they fret about having to lead people who have more expert knowledge. Leading Your Team is specifically designed to help the anxious team leader handle such challenges. This user-friendly reference plunges right in with the "how-to" of effective team leadership, leading the reader step-by-step through the basics of teamwork. Rather than use practical advice to illustrate theory, the authors put the day-to-day practicalities of actually managing a working team as center stage, explaining how to get the job done rather than describing what the job is supposed to look like.
