The Team Formula
Their first book,”The Team Formula” was published in 2013 and is a leadership book in an engaging story format. It has received two awards in recognition of its creative format and has been praised by readers for its spot-on descriptions of team dynamics – in the London Book Festival and the Indie Excellence Awards.
This is a business book told in a story format for leaders; a Leadership Tale. It takes place in the world of international business where, as a result of an acquisition, two companies merge creating a team: A team struggling with conflicts and dishonesty, but also showing glimpses of loyalty and hope. Stephen, the team’s leader, is challenged to get them working together. In these times of change and economic downturn, it’s more important than ever that he gets it right. Follow Stephen and his team on their journey through the thorny maze that all teams travel through. This is a quick, must-read for leaders and team members in any organisation. The book offers a fun, engaging and informative experience, providing opportunities for reflection as well as valuable ideas that can be implemented immediately. The story tempts the reader, to look at him/herself and ask the questions: What choices am I making? How does this apply to me and my team? What am I doing to make this team work? The reader can easily relate to the characters and real-life situations. Everyone will recognise a part of themselves, as well as their colleagues, so you want to know what’s going to happen next: It’s a page-turner. Above all, this is a book about going from intellectual understanding to a change in behaviour for everyone on the team.

Most of us work in or manage teams, but are we really getting the most out of the numerous benefits of effective teamwork? All too often there are roadblocks – ranging from a lack of engagement to clashing personalities – that are holding us back from achieving the results we need.
Leading Teams shows team leaders how to overcome the most common obstacles to team performance and drive outstanding results from their people.
Strong teamwork equals:
A greater sense of accomplishment
Leading Teams is built on the authors’ experience of coaching 1,000+ team leaders in over 15 global corporations for the last 15 years, during which they discovered the 10 main issues holding teams back. Each challenge includes a common scenario and step-by-step solutions/behaviours to counter each one. There’s also a framework for how to lead a team-enhancement workshop, plus supporting plans and templates on their website (www.leadingteamsbook.com).
