Editorial Reviews

Review

"Committed Teams starts with a simple insight--that the fundamentals of good teamwork are easy to understand but tough to put into practice. It's full of engaging stories and practical advice for closing the knowing-doing gap."
 -Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of GIVE AND TAKE and ORIGINALS
"As an NFL executive and former 15-year professional player, I know the power of a team.  The authors have broken down teamwork to an understandable science that will inform all who seek to master the art of working together for a common goal."
-Troy Vincent, Sr., Executive Vice President of NFL Football Operations.

From the Inside Flap

Several times a year, dozens of senior leaders from around the globe form competing teams in the Executive Development Program at The Wharton School of Business. Observing over 100 groups working together in this intense living laboratory, the authors created a groundbreaking teamwork process and are now making it available to you. Committed Teams distills their insights down to a simple, repeatable framework that generates exceptional results.

A practical how-to guide, Committed Teams is divided into two parts. Part One describes the three essential steps that produce high-performing teams: establishing commitments, building productive relationships, and closing the gap between stated goals and day-to-day behaviors. It also addresses the inevitable challenges that teams encounter in accessing their full potential. Part Two applies the three-step process to the five most common types of teaming: virtual teams, start-ups, innovation projects, leadership groups, and committees. The result is an engaging mix of stories and real-world wisdom presented through:

  • Vivid examples illustrating principles that drive successful teamwork in every industry and every part of the world
  • Strategies and tips for overcoming the typical problems you face in collaborating with others
  • Worksheets, checklists, and other tools for applying the three-step framework and engaging your teammates

Today's complex, high-speed, global workplace requires that you build high-performing teams. Committed Teams shows how to get the job done.

Format: Hardcover
An important contribution in the crowded category of books on teams. A thoughtful "how to" guide. A book that bridges theory and practice. It is substantive but not pedantic. What is distinctive here is the use of concepts and methods from cultural anthropology to better understand team dynamics. The authors address the complex and messy "process" side of building more robust and resilient "commitment" in teams. As such, this book is a complement to McKinsey's primer, "The Wisdom of Teams" with its task and business logic focus. In short, you sense the authors know this terrain, know the dilemmas, and they offer a few, much needed, tools and diagnostic checklists to navigate this terrain.

What I love about this book, in addition to offering very practical approaches you can put to work immediately, is that it is based on significant base of experience. Not the kind of conceptual life experience that so many team managed books are rooted in but, rather, a sort of laboratory in which the authors got to work with than observe a great number of teams as part of an executive education program.

This book gives insight into the pitfalls and positives of teams, and how to best make them work. I see the value of things like analyzing team members' bargaining styles even within groups of students, or family members! I understand why some groups "clicked" and others did not.

I received an electronic advance review copy from the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Format: Hardcover
Committed Teams synthesizes years of research on the components and creation of teams into concrete, understandable, actionable frameworks to assess, reform, and develop High Performing Teams (HPTs). The topic of team creation is ubiquitous throughout many industries, yet so often the discussion and process around team creation is too shallow to ensure a positive outcome. While many have heard about, and feel confident in the development of goals, roles, and norms, this book unpacks the creation of effectual goals, roles, and norms, and provides steps for ensuring their maintenance over time. I have found that it is so easy to feel like you get the gist of creating teams, but down the line you find yourself with a team that has slowly drifted apart. This book clearly lays how not only how to create but maintain a team in ways that are immediately operational in a real life setting. Beyond providing support for the creation of new teams that I am working on, the frameworks in the book helped me to understand and explain prior experiences I had with teams that started off strong and slowly went awry. This book is truly invaluable for anyone interested in the creation and maintenance of effectual, successful, and truly high-performing teams.
