I recently came across this brilliant book. It reinforces and validates through research, almost every single concept and principle experienced and shared by participants in "CorporateTheatre" workshops. It is uncanny! Around 35,000 workshop participants, since June 2002, have behaviourally demonstrated and consistently shared the power of 'Natural' teams. These concepts and insights have been captured in this blog over the past few years. Jon Katzenbach and Douglas Smith have done research with a variety of high performance teams as well as teams that have failed, and their findings are aboslutely in sync.
Over the next few posts I will be sharing with my readers excerpts from the book and the "CorporateTheatre" insights that reflect the same principles.
I would also strongly recommend the book as compulsory reading for all those who are in the business of building, leading, and empowering teams.
