Using vivid stories of functional and dysfunctional teams they've worked with, four consultants describe the values and practices that characterize high-performing work groups. Elisabeth Rodgers's performance captures the authors' confidence and delivers their advice with fsensitivity to the arc of each story and the principles behind their recommendations. She speaks to listeners with a wonderful blend of strength and charming accessibility. The team dysfunctions and the interventions the authors offer remind us that we shouldn't be satisfied with work groups that make us feel insecure, distrusting, or uncertain of our team's purpose. Calling the best teams "loyalist" captures the central idea--that teams work best when everyone is authentically committed to the group's mission and each other, rather than competing, defending turf, or avoiding difficult discussions.
