It provides tools, learning and practical suggestions, to help you and your team achieve even greater success by understanding both WHO is in your team and HOW effective your teamwork is.

It will get you to appreciate those areas of your teamwork that are working well, whilst also highlighting areas that could be working better and need to be shared with your team, discussed and if agreed, changed.

I believe this would definitely give value to a team or a leader reading it.

After reading this one chapter I can’t wait to read the rest of the book.

Chapter 1: Technical Skills:  Raising awareness of this important aspect of teamwork, which is often overlooked, really got me thinking about those who I work with, and not knowing what skills they have.

Chapter 2: Behavioural Skills:  Reading this one chapter made the penny drop as to why there has often been conflict in the teams that I have worked in! The paradigm shifts from difficult to different and frustration to fascination really resonated.  I cannot wait to read more.

Chapter 3: The Team DyNAmics Model: Overall I thought it was really good and gave a good overall outline of how and why the model was created….which I must admit I found really interesting!  

Chapter 4: Purpose: It’s really easy to read, whatever role you have in a team and I love the fact there’s some really practical take aways from it.

Chapter 5: Trust: I really love the real life example that brings it to life.

Chapter 6: Planning: I really like the BEPART model – great little way of bringing planning to life in a practical way.

Chapter 7: Collaboration: I really enjoyed reading this chapter.  The storytelling and case study are great, and the layout makes it easy to read. 

Chapter 8: Accountability: Good read – from a manager’s point of view some good examples of explaining why accountability is important and that it doesn’t always sit on one set of shoulders.

Chapter 9: Commitment: Reading this chapter is valuable whatever experience the reader has, offering new ideas and also valuable reminders. The content would definitely help me speak up in a positive way.

Chapter 10: Roles & Skills: I think you’ve got it absolutely right, we definitely need the right people with the right skills in the right roles! I really like the way you’ve framed it and the great example you’ve given.

Chapter 11: Communication: I totally identified my communication style just from the examples. Being able to identify myself so easily in just this chapter made it more personal and drew me in more.

Chapter 12: Decision Making:  I really enjoyed this as it was not too long or complicated, engaging stories, friendly whilst professional. 

Chapter 13: Team Meetings: Love the concepts and the tips that are in here. I think there are some great takeaways I could use. 

Chapter 14: Processes: I am so excited to read the rest of the book when it comes out! I love the very natural, conversational style of writing and the content was easy to understand, digest and kept me interested. 

Chapter 15: Environment: I really love it, especially the red flag section and the hands on examples, that’s what people need! 

Chapter 16: Vision: I love it. Informative and there are several activities and actions teams can use that “fit” them. 

Chapter 17: Diversity:  Having read this one chapter, I cannot wait to read the rest of your book!  To share the experience of a real life event makes it all seem more real.  It’s not the first thing people think about when being asked about diversity.

Chapter 18: Reflection: I think the points you make about Reflection are so important and exactly as you say, not always done, particularly when teams are in “work, work, work” mode.

Chapter 20: Leadership: This chapter gave me lots of food for thought in terms of my leadership skills, how I use my time and inspire and motivate others.  The quotations by leaders you have worked with were brilliant.
