Parker Team Series
In conjunction with HRD Press I are creating a series of booklets on various aspects of teamwork. Each of the publications will include 20 tools, be 40 to 50 pages in length and cover topics such as meetings, leadership, climate, conflict, rewards and recognition and team building.
Volume 1: Teamwork: 20 Steps to Success
Over 100,000 copies sold!
I created this brief, easy-to-read booklet for organizations looking for a publication that can be given to every team member. This small (5" x 8") booklet is just 40 pages long but it is packed with clear explanations, useful exercises, meaningful vignettes and solid examples of the total team process. The publication's layout and use of color make it compelling for the reader. The first edition sold more than 100,000 copies.
The new 2009 2nd Edition includes revisions and updates based on our experience.
The booklet identifies, describes and provides resources for 20 action steps:
- Start With Team Goals.
- Select the Right People.
- Define Everyone's Role.
- Empower the Team.
- Open Your Talent Bank.
- Appreciate Style Differences.
- Establish Ground Rules.
- Create a Relaxed Climate.
- Prepare a Work Plan.
- Get the Work Done.
- Hold Effective Meetings.
- Build External Networks.
- Resolved Conflicts Successfully
- Build a Climate of Trust.
- Communicate, Communicate, Communicate.
- Get Everyone Committed.
- Make Decisions By Consensus.
- Reward Team Results.
- Assess Team Performance.
- Celebrate Team Accomplishments.
The booklet concludes with a 10-step guide to getting the most
from this book. You get a lot of information and resources in less
than 50 pages.
