Book Description

For every leader who has ever wondered what level of excellence their team could achieve, Teamwork 101 lays out a plan packed with insight to get them there.

John C. Maxwell believes that "teamwork is at the heart of great achievement. The question isn't whether teams have value. The question is whether we acknowledge that fact and become better team players." In Teamwork 101, Maxwell draws on leadership wisdom from his books The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork, Talent Is Never Enough, Developing Leaders Around You, The 360º Leader, Winning with People, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, and The 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player. This concise, power-packed game plan can help leaders create an environment that brings about victory and fulfillment to the whole team.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Anatomy of a Great Team December 13, 2009
On paper, the 1969 New York Mets appeared to be a mediocre team, at best. Their shortstop and second baseman were skinny little guys who barely hit their weight. Their first baseman was a cast off from the Pirates; a guy with power, but who struck out too much. Their right fielder was an erratic player, offensively and defensively; every play was an adventure for Ron Swoboda.

What the casual observer might not have realized is the Mets' pitching staff was about to come into its own; guys like Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman, Gary Gentry, and Nolan Ryan had tons of talent which would manifest itself in a trip to the World Series and a stunning upset of the highly favored Baltimore Orioles. The entire baseball world was amazed; and the Orioles were shaking their heads after falling to those Amazin' Mets in five games.

Of course, what the Mets were able to achieve, as a team, far exceeded their "individual" expectations; and the rest is baseball history.

John C Maxwell knows leadership, and he knows it takes great teamwork to make any leader successful. The qualities which every leader needs to know to produce a winning team are packaged nicely in this wonderful book. It's written in the typically pragmatic Maxwell style---direct and engaging. After reading it, you'll realize you knew everything he said; but then you'll realize everything he said is rarely achieved.

Throughout history, the great leaders---from Alexander the Great to Winston Churchill---were able to rally their followers to accomplish remarkable feats. Looking back on it, the stubborn persistence of an entire country during a ferocious attack by Nazi Germany, helped turn the tide in World War II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book on Leadership! June 29, 2011
This is an excellent book on leadership, one that all leaders should read and follow!

The points that John cover in this book are critical in all leaders and teams such as developing a team that lasts, creating positive energy on the team and harnessing the team's creativity.

John uses short sections and gives stories in the book to really drive these points home. Short and to the point!

I also love that this book is small in shape which allows me to keep it in the pocket of my briefcase and re-read sections whenever I have some downtime. I highly recommend this book for all leaders, managers and team members.

5.0 out of 5 stars A leader in the making September 5, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This little book packs a hugh punch when it comes a novice like me who is a leader in the making. I just started my own financial services company a few months ago and at first i was doing well by myself then my friends saw the value of the business and wanted in. Now I have a team of 7 and they are all great people but have different personalities and needs. I needed help and direction so i saw this book and decided to buy it. And im glad i did it has helped me understand teamwork and what it takes for us to work together as a team. I just purchased six more books to give out to the team. Great litle book!

2.0 out of 5 stars Skip this one February 10, 2014
The title of this book is correct, not that there are 101 ideas about teamwork, but rather this is an introductory class into teamwork. Maxwell says as much in his introduction—this is a gathering of ideas from his other books and is not meant for in-depth discussion. What remains is “there’s no I in teamwork” type of conversation. It’s okay, but doesn’t offer a lot of traction.

The main takeaways I received from this book are: stay humble, do things together, build trust, communicate, and empower others. Aside from the small amount of related stories, there’s not much more to this book.

The largest point of contention I have with this book is the treatment of unproductive team members. My personal philosophy is that everyone has something to contribute or that they are passionate about. Sometimes we may not have an option to get rid of unproductive team members, as Maxwell clearly advocates. I understand his point of drag and the power of negative energy, but it seems that more modern business books deal with this in a more effective manner than compared with offing the member from your team.

Overall, this is a quick read and can refocus you on the value of teamwork. It’s not groundbreaking, nor as inspiring as some of its other business counterparts. Maxwell is a great author, but this book seemed more like a cheap way to grab shelf space.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teamwork 101 Review September 5, 2013
By DebVall
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was very informative and easy to understand. I always considered myself a teamplayer. After reading this book, it's clear that I'm not nearly the teamplayer I thought I was. There's definitely room for improvement.
