Picked up Why Teams Win as I'm currently coaching my son's little league team. It has been helpful working with the kids, however, I had no idea how relevant it was going to be to my own work. I manage a corporate sales team, have been doing so for almost a decade, and can not believe I haven't thought of/come across some of these practices in the past. Specifically useful for me is how Miller defines the different types of team and outlines the different coaching/team building strategies for each one. I work in a org that's very top down, which requires one leadership style, but my specific group is very individually based, which requires another, something I never thought of before. If you work in business, or in a team setting of any kind, I'd be very surprised if you didn't find this of use.
