Teamwork & Leadership Redefined - How to build shared direction, alignment and commitment through new approaches to team tasks, meeting types and leadership roles
Although our organizations have changed over time, many of our widely held understandings of leadership, teams and team development have not changed for decades. What we need is a redefinition of leadership teams and teamwork, which is exactly what this book represents.
Many of the leadership tasks in today’s organizations cross organizational boundaries. They require a well-functioning leadership team to be solved professionally. However, as Anders Trillingsgaard points out in the first lines of the book: “Leadership teams can be like organizational black holes that consume and destroy all the energy, initiative and ambition of both leaders and employees. Or they can be fountains or even geysers of relentless progress, exciting ambitions, creative collaboration and human development.”
TEAMWORK & LEADERSHIP REDEFINED is built around 8 redefining insights that challenge widespread, yet outdated understandings of teamwork and leadership that often give rise to confusion and ineffective leadership.
To give the reader more room for discussion and interpretations the book also contains three separate case studies co-authored by leading colleagues in the field of leadership team training:
