It is well-known that teambuilding and motivational skills, and the leadership role in particular, are of crucial importance in business. Managers and leaders must be effective team builders and motivators to be able to achieve their business aims and get the best out of people. The skills needed in both these areas should be practiced and improved upon on a constant basis to ensure they help build and maintain effective and efficient teams.
This book develops Adair’s classic theory on Team, Task and Individual, and summarises all his writing on leadership and motivation and getting the best from people. It includes sections on being motivated oneself, selecting people, target setting and reward and recognition.
