The Rowers' Code
IN THIS SUMMARY
The Rowers’ Code by Marilyn Krichko with Jane Rollinson tells the story of what it takes to build a great team. This business parable follows a team of eight people with a new manager as they participate in a teambuilding exercise that requires them to row crew. Along the way, they learn the seven rules of the Rowers’ Code—rules that can apply to any team, whether they are on a boat in the water or out in today’s competitive business world. The Rowers’ Code offers a new set of behaviors that can help any team overcome challenges and meet goals. It provides an outline for building a culture based on teamwork and communication. As the team learns how to row together, they simultaneously learn the elements of highly effective teamwork.
