From the Inside Flap

Gregory Huszczo's first book, TOOLS FOR TEAM EXCELLENCE, broke new ground with its seven-point model for building teams in organizations. Now, in this new, much-anticipated guide, Huszczo focuses on the one vital component that separates the great teams built on collaboration and partnership from the also-rans.

TOOLS FOR TEAM LEADERSHIP introduces the critical "X-factor" in team success--leadership--and delivers an advanced set of tools and strategies to help anyone become an effective team leder. Grounded in the author's practical frontline experience with hundreds of teams and backed by solid research and instruments, it explores the essence of leadership in a team environment. Huszczo identifies the three chief responsibilities of every team leader--raise awareness, generate options, and plan for success--and presents a comprehensive toolbox for use in analyzing a team's strengths and weaknesses, creatively brainstorming strategies and tactics, generating options and facilitating consensus, and implementing action plans that help teams help themselves.

Jam-packed with questionnaires, checklists, needs assessments, organizational surveys, sample training modules and exercises, TOOLS FOR TEAM LEADERSHIP covers teambuilding for both new and existing teams, with special help for teambuilding at the top, and includes a self-study review at the end of each chapter to help turn key learning concepts into a plan of action.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 26, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This is a solidly written, clear and comprehensive guide to leading teams. Author Gregory E. Huszczo touches on almost every subject a team leader needs to know - what skills are necessary, how you develop them, how you build teams, what you do when conflict erupts and so on. This book is an excellent introduction to team building for someone newly assigned to a team. It also offers important advice for executives of companies that are considering a team approach to management. The style is clear and straightforward, but quite academic. The author cites research and evidence to back his assertions, but he does not provide much in the way of entertainment. We find that those who like to swallow their management lore straight from the bottle will savor this book; those who prefer to mix it with anecdotes may wish to imbibe elsewhere.

I had the opportunity to attend a class with Gregory Huszsco on building teams. I have to say that the class, as well as the book, was very informative and very well thought out. Those of us who are in teams, managing teams, or thinking of using teams in our organization all should read this. It should be required reading for management and all team members.

Format: Hardcover
The author builds upon "Tools for Team Excellence," his previous work, this time focusing on leadership. He provides an advanced set of approaches and techniques for successful team leadership. This self-study book explores the central qualities of leadership in a team environment. It includes a toolbox for analyzing a team and methods to help a team help lead and build itself. The book is loaded with key points, extremely well written and organized, and offers many examples, 36 exercises, 21 highlighting tables, chapter summaries, and after-chapter reviews. A book that sparkles with substance.

Do you want to get more out of your team or run it more effectively - then this book is for you. As a trainer, I look for tools that can help me get more out of my employees and team members. This book is a great resource for any manager or HR person.
