Overview

'Creating Effective Teams takes readers by the hand through the four developmental stages of getting from group creation to highly effective teams. It is packed with strategies for building and supporting well-managed, high-performing teams. The author provides ample checklists and case examples to guide members and leaders through their groups' developmental states and to help them work through the times when they inevitably get stuck. She does an amazing job of summarizing a vast literature of empirical research on team functioning and development into a comprehensive yet uncomplicated, straightforward guide.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
"When teams are good, they're very, very good." They are also necessary given the increasing complexity of work. So contends Wheelan (Training and Development Center, Temple U.), who presents a lucid four-stage developmental approach to transforming work groups into high performance teams. Replete with "what you can do" advice, case examples, checklists, humor, and references (14 pages worth). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
John McGlaughlin
"Creating Effective Teams by Susan Wheelan is the team development book that I’ve been waiting for. Easy to read and understand, it has something for everybody. For the manager, it clearly explains how teams actually work, what makes them productive and what the leader needs to do to help the team. It also includes tips on popular, but ineffective, steps to avoid. "
Jan Kesselring
"We see many school staffs and leadership teams which are simply stuck at a particular stage in their professional growth. Until this book, there has been a huge gap in user-friendly resources to help them become more productive. We are providing a copy for every school staff and leadership team with whom we work."
