Teams are everywhere - business, industry, schools, hospitals and government. There are executive, management and cross-functional teams, as well as teams formed for specific tasks and projects. But when a team can succeed or fail on the quality and effectiveness of its leader, everyone will have a view on the leadership qualities that are most important. So what makes a successful team? And what can leaders do to ensure that their teams collaborate effectively and are committed to the right goals? This new title looks at all aspects of teamwork, with a particular focus on the role of the leader, and examines some of the most common challenges facing both teams and leaders, including: interpersonal challenges; working in a global context; different roles in different teams; multicultural teams; and coaching and developing team members. Written by experienced academics and practitioners, the book incorporates results from specially-commissioned survey on team-working, organized by Ashridge Business School, but also uses the authors' access to leaders and team members working in sport, the military, business and the charity sector.

What is there in developmental relationships beyond setting and striving to achieve goals? The presence of goals in coaching and mentoring programs has gone largely unquestioned, yet evidence is growing that the standard prescription of SMART, challenging goals is not always appropriate - and even potentially dangerous - in the context of a complex and rapidly changing world. Beyond Goals advances standard goal-setting theory by bringing together cutting-edge perspectives from leaders in coaching and mentoring. From psychology to neuroscience, from chaos theory to social network theory, the contributors offer diverse and compelling insights into both the advantages and limitations of goal pursuit. The result is a more nuanced understanding of goals, with the possibility for practitioners to bring greater impact and sophistication to their client engagements. The implications of this reassessment are substantial for all those practicing as coaches and mentors, or managing coaching or mentoring initiatives in organizations.

The biggest lie we were told is that a college education will prepare us for a lifelong career. If you go to college or put in your four years and earn a bachelor's degree, you will find a rewarding and stimulating career with a comfortable salary and benefits. The reality is, there is a huge skill gap between the classroom and the workplace, and this skill gap is the main reason I watched countless friends struggle post-school to find a meaningful career. While we sent out resumes and cleaned up our LinkedIn profiles, an entire generation of college graduates moved back home to live with friends or family because we couldn't afford to pay rent thanks to being, on average, $35,000 in debt to student loan companies. Here's why: We are living in an Age of Agility. The world is changing so quickly, higher education can't keep pace and as a result, we aren't given the tools to prepare us for a sustainable and rewarding career. College graduates are not prepared to enter the workforce. Unlike other pop business books, I'm not selling an empty box of "dream big and work hard." This is a book about defining the path to your dream and working smart. Rather than focusing only on the current state of the industry, this book is about the skills you need to keep pace with the industry as it changes. No matter how the industry shifts, agile skills-skills like social and emotional intelligence, communication, self-management, and creative problem-solving-will always be relevant. Instead of teaching you what to think, this book will teach you how to think. If you like where this is going, flip to Why Read This Book-there's a good chance Age of Agility was written for you.

They'll learn how to: * Set the tone and direction for the project * Communicate effectively * Motivate, inspire, and engage their team * Encourage flexibility and collaboration * Deal productively with stress, criticism, and change * Establish the kind of high morale that attracts top performers * And more The second edition includes several expanded sections on self-awareness and self-management, as well as a new chapter on using EI to lead Agile Teams and a close look at Servant Leadership. Without the people skills necessary to lead effectively, even the most care fully orchestrated project can fall apart. This indispensable guide gives project managers the tools they need to create winning teams and get the job done right and on time.
