Congratulations! You’ve just landed a new job as a team leader!
You are very excited, yet, because you never studied any management or business administration, you are also worried about how you are going to pull this off…
How do you create an amazing team? How do you get people to work together constructively? How do you keep the project on track? What do you do when conflict explodes? How do you ensure that managing your team’s request doesn’t eat up all your time?
This book is a practical guide to accompany you through the process of becoming a great leader and putting together a dream team. It will show you how to:
Identify the leadership skills you already possess and build on them.
Successfully transition from team-member to team leader.
Get rid of overwhelm and learn to manage your time.
Achieve your team goals through smart planning and follow-up.
Manage the team formation process to create a strong, cohesive team.
Maintain smooth communication by establishing solid systems.
Help your team members avoid or overcome demotivation and burnout.
Resolve conflict constructively.
This is the book I wish I had when I started as a team leader years ago. I’ve put together all the best strategies I researched and tested through my own journey as a leader.
Within weeks of reading this book, and applying the ideas discussed here, you will see positive changes in how you relate to your team. You will have a clear vision of who you want to be as a leader and how to put together a dream team, and most importantly, the tools and a plan on how to get there.
The journey starts here. It’s a fun one.
"I so wish I had been able to have this book years ago when I was suddenly promoted to a Department Director's position. I was an excellent clinical dietitian, and a competent educator, but I was suddenly thrown into a management job and felt like I was treading water. As luck would have it, I did not do too badly because I had an educator's mind set and saw my role as one of facilitation of the work of others. But so many mistakes along the way could have been avoided with a resource such as this book is."
