Editorial Reviews

Soundview Executive Book Summaries
Industrial/organizational psychologist Gregory E. Huszczo calls leadership the "X-factor" that determines whether a team is successful or not. In Tools for Team Leadership, he offers team leaders many creative strategies to help them improve their ability to raise awareness, generate opinions, analyze a team, provide constructive feedback, gain consensus, and plan for success. While discussing communication skills, Huszczo presents several ways to get teams to focus on what they have learned about an issue and learn by examining the assumptions underlying their perspectives.

    A Good Read!

    This is a solidly written, clear and comprehensive guide to leading teams. Author Gregory E. Huszczo touches on almost every subject a team leader needs to know - what skills are necessary, how you develop them, how you build teams, what you do when conflict erupts and so on. This book is an excellent introduction to team building for someone newly assigned to a team. It also offers important advice for executives of companies that are considering a team approach to management. The style is clear and straightforward, but quite academic. The author cites research and evidence to back his assertions, but he does not provide much in the way of entertainment. We find that those who like to swallow their management lore straight from the bottle will savor this book; those who prefer to mix it with anecdotes may wish to imbibe elsewhere.
