Building and managing an effective team is much more difficult than succeeding on an individual level. As managers, it’s necessary to create an environment where teamwork, individual initiative, and creativity are encouraged. Without a clear roadmap of how to accomplish this, managers may soon find the ambitions of themselves and their teams frustrated.
In WINNING WELL: A Manager’s Guide To Getting Results – Without Losing Your Soul, leadership training experts Karin Hurt and David Dye provide such a roadmap, giving current and aspiring managers the tools needed to achieve consistent excellence. The authors encourage managers to extend their time horizon beyond the next monthly or quarterly earnings report, and to think about how to build teams that create long-lasting value, whose members reinforce one another, and that are inter-dependent. “Where other manager types tend to focus on short-term goals, managers who win well have a longer time horizon,” say Hurt and Dye. “They build teams that will produce results today as well as next year. Winning well means sustaining excellence over time.”
From keeping people focused, leading meetings, and holding people accountable, to ensuring loyalty, inspiring productivity, and even terminating employees with grace and dignity, WINNING WELL provides the tools and techniques to help managers and their teams achieve results, stay focused, and prevent projects from falling through the cracks.
