Plenty of books will tell you why self-directed teams are good for businesses and the people in them. But very few also show how to set teamwork into motion, day by day and year by year. If you're seeking that "second-generation" level of guidance - how-to, detailed, based on struggles and successes at organizations just like yours - look no further than Teaming Up. Dr. Darrel Ray has front-line experience in helping teams grow at manufacturing and service companies, government and social service agencies, Fortune 500 giants, and small firms. His approach has been proven to work in union and non-union environments, and the payoffs have been measurable: higher morale, better use of resources, and dramatic positive impact on bottomline profit.
