From New York Times bestselling authors and renowned leadership consultants Adrian Gostick and Chester Elton comes a groundbreaking guide to building high-performance teams. ➽ What is the true driver of a thriving organization’s exceptional success? ➽ Is it a genius leader? ➽ An iron-clad business plan? Gostick and Elton shatter these preconceptions of corporate achievement. Their research shows that breakthrough success is guided by a particular breed of high-performing team that generates its own momentum—an engaged group of colleagues in the trenches, working passionately together to pursue a shared vision. Why doesn’t every corporate leader actively listen to employees and to veteran consultants like Gostick and Elton？ Though the answer to that question isn’t the subject of this book, adopting the how-to’s for realizing dreams could indeed provide the solution to staid, stagnant, and unrewarding work. Their research also shows that only 20 percent of teams are working anywhere near this optimal capacity. How can your team become one of them? Based on a groundbreaking 350,000-person study by the Best Companies Group, as well as extraordinary research into exceptional teams at leading companies, including Zappos.com, Pepsi Beverages Company, and Madison Square Garden, the authors have determined a key set of characteristics displayed by members of breakthrough teams, and have identified a set of rules great teams live by, which generate a culture of positive teamwork and lead to extraordinary results. Using a wealth of specific stories from the breakthrough teams they studied, they reveal in detail how these teams operate and how managers can transform their own teams into such high performers by fostering: ➽ Stronger clarity of goals: Goal setting (knowing where you are going) ➽ Greater trust among team members : Trust (believing in others and being trustworthy) ➽ More open and honest dialogue : Communication (wise use of your voice and ears) ➽ Stronger accountability for all team members Accountability (doing what you say you will do) ➽ Purpose-based recognition of team members’ contributions : Recognition (appreciating others' strengths) The remarkable stories they tell about these teams in action provide a simple and powerful step-by-step guide to taking your team to the breakthrough level, igniting the passion and vision to bring about an Orange Revolution. Characteristics of the best managers ： ➽ Goal setting (knowing where you are going) ➽ Communication (wise use of your voice and ears) ➽ Trust (believing in others and being trustworthy) ➽ Accountability (doing what you say you will do) ➽ Recognition (appreciating others' strengths) The rule of 3 in cultivating a team : ➽ Wow: team members must hold themselves and each other to a world-class standard of performance ➽ No Surprises: all team members must engage in open communication with one another, establishing clarity of expectations, freely debating issues, disagreeing if they have good reason to, and sharing ideas ➽ Cheer: team members must root for each other, which includes appreciating great work, providing support, and avoiding disparagement Six ingredients to world-class results: ➽ Dream ➽ Believe ➽ Risk ➽ Measure ➽ Persevere ➽ Tell stories No Surprises: Arts of Mastering Communication ➽ Communicate pre-, present, and post- ➽ Acknowledgment and respect ➽ Availability ➽ Accepting ideas ➽ Responsiveness ➽ Broadcasting vitals (deadlines, goals, responsibilities, progress are always in view and members are aware of the objectives of their teammates and the team as a whole) ➽ Offer help, ask for help ➽ Create face-to-face time Best role for the manager and senior leader in the creation of espirit de corps： ① Allow it: If you see it happening, give permission to allow it to grow. Keep in mind that you may think a few mavericks are joining forces to create trouble. But with like-minded counterparts, has-been trouble-makers can become breakthrough team leaders. ② Train it: Don't assume any of this comes naturally. Create development opportunities for people to understand how to find and build their breakthrough teams. Teach them how to create opportunities for honest elephant-in-the-room discussions - giving people a chance to discover others who may share passions, perceptions, etc. ③ Find it: Look for teams operating at outlier levels or those with the potential to do so and foster appropriate situations and conditions for their success. Your job is to realize the breakthrough team exists and allow it to exist - not to control it. ④ Reward it: Show the teams that you notice their shared vision and passion, and that you appreciate it. Don't wait for a final outcome to say thanks, but reward every step toward success along the way. Frequent recognition will only make the team achieve more. ⑤ Promote and profile it: Realize that all employees want to be part of a great team. Promote members of outstanding teams, and communicate how their commitment to each other boosted the organization as a whole. Let others learn from their success. Make sure to apply these to teams inside and outside the office. Families, friends, neighbors, church groups, etc. can all benefit from Wow, No Surprises, and Cheer! As with most human resources type of business books, the authors present ideas in a many-stepped process, with principles to follow, often too many to remember. Yet if readers and executives just stick to their rule of three (wow, no surprises, and cheer), the rewards of an engaged workforce will probably ensue. Examples of great teams, believe it or not, proliferate here; in addition to the well-known cultures of a Zappos, for instance, there are also stories from Medical City Dallas Hospital, Pepsi Bottling Group, the Blue Angels, and Nash Finch, all about the power of teams to transform.
