Christopher and his team put together an easily read, comprehensive guide to work and play well with others in today's complicated corporate societies. I've employed these principles in a broad range of industries: automotive tube mfg., freight expediting, network marketing, modular home sales and delivery, even family reunions! Teamwork Is an Individual Skill is now on my "read every year" shelf. Read it and live it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I enjoyed reading and digesting the practical, easy to understand advice given by the authors of this book. Members of any team can gain valuable information and insight on how to function more effectively on their teams. However, the sage advice given in this book will not set well with those reluctant to take responsibility for their own actions. The focus is on personal responsibility and developing what the authors¿ term 'TeamWisdom.' By following their advice, those with TeamWisdom can create highly responsible and productive relationships at work. The book can equip you with individual skills and behaviors to make a difference in the success of your team, provided of course that you are ready to accept responsibility and take action. Each topic in the five chapters is organized in a format that highlights and explains the skill or behavior necessary to gain TeamWisdom. This is followed by both a Personal Challenge to help you put it into practice and a Team Challenge to help you implement it with team members. Each topic ends with a real life example of how each skill or behavior has been put to practice. As someone you works to develop collaborative partnerships, I found the advice in this book realistic, clearly presented and concise. I highly recommend it as a sound, practical guide for anyone who shares responsibility with others to get work accomplished but doesn¿t have authority over them.Was this review helpful?
