What others are saying about 50 Tips for Terrific Teams!
“I found reading 50 Tips for Terrific Teams to be more of a journey than a read because as I was walking through it, I was motivated to evaluate my team and where we were at. It is a good leadership guide in the way it is written because it is crisp in the research and leadership principles, not overdone. The addition of practical actions made it easy for me to apply the tips immediately to my new team.”

“While many leaders and coaches are well intentioned, they are frequently disappointed with their outcomes when trying to create high performing teams. 50 Tips for Terrific Teams has brilliantly integrated the research (which few of us have time to sort through) and translated it into practical suggestions that will absolutely help create the desired shifts. This guide is user friendly and is the closest thing to having your own personal sage. I would recommend this book as an essential tool for anyone who leads a team or works with or on a team.”
