Product description

From the Back Cover

Your How-to Manual for Building Effective Teams.

Team development is an art form, and The Art of Coaching Teams is your how-to guide to doing it effectively. You'll learn the administrative tasks that keep your team on track, and you'll gain access to a wealth of downloadable tools that simplify the process. You'll also explore what it means to be the kind of leader that can bring people together to accomplish difficult tasks. You'll find practical suggestions, tools, and clear instructions for the logistics of team development as well as for building trust, developing healthy communication, and managing conflict.

There's no universal formula for building a great team, because every team is different. Instead,The Art of Coaching Teams provides a practical framework to help you develop your group as a whole, and keep the team moving toward their common goals.

"An amazing resource for all team leaders, no matter what type of team you lead. Elena knows how challenging the work of leading a team can be, and her book is both practical and inspiring. A great combination."
Jennifer Abrams, author of Having Hard Conversations and The Multigenerational Workplace

"An extremely practical guide to leading teams that doesn't ignore the complexity of that important work. If you're a coach who leads teams, this is a must-read."
Jim Knight, author of Instructional Coaching: A Partnership to Improving Instruction

"A book that will make anyone a better and more reflective leader."
Kent D. Peterson, emeritus professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison, author ofShaping School Culture
