Team development specialist Simon Mac Rory offers a comprehensive guide to strengthening teams. The ability to work in teams is a significant human advantage, yet some people seem to abandon their innate teamwork skills at work, and firms often fail to pay attention to how their teams are working. However, companies with a proper plan for improving team effectiveness can boost their productivity and profitability. The author argues that the gig economy and the advent of millennial employees makes it imperative to position teams as central to your strategy. He enriches his argument by drawing on related academic findings.
