“This book takes time to measure the success of teams from the lens of both business and sports. Growing Groups into Teams clarifies the difference between groups and teams and the lack of the success that groups have because they are not teams. Whether you’re in a start-up, turn-around, or reorganization, the tools provided will guide you and your team toward the shared values and mission that will yield the results for which your organization was established. Growing Groups into Teams provides a template that any organization can implement to prevent those failures and allows leaders to create a culture of trust.”
