Creating Effective Teams: A Guide for Members and Leaders is a practical guide for building and sustaining top-performing teams. Based on the author’s many years of consulting experience with teams in the public and private sectors, the Fourth Edition describes why teams are important, how they function, and what makes them productive.

The author covers in depth the four stages of a team—forming, storming, norming, and performing—clearly illustrating the developmental nature of teams and describing what happens in each stage. Separate chapters are devoted to the responsibilities of team leaders and team members. Problems that occur frequently in groups are highlighted, followed by what-you-can-do sections that offer specific advice. Real-life examples and questionnaires are used throughout the book, giving readers the opportunity for self-evaluation.

Primary changes:

Reorganization of chapters

Increasing reader awareness of the shift in the U.S., and parts of Europe, toward leadership training and away from membership training. These shifts have had negative effects on team work, team training and productivity.

Chapters of the 4th edition of C.E.T. were reorganized to improve clarity and learning focus about work group development across time. Chapters 3 to 6 give readers the opportunity to learn about what individual members , and the leader, can do to help their group through the stages of group development. Chapter 7 describes how high performance teams function. Chapters 8 and 9 describe effective team membership and leadership. Finally, the improtance of organizational support for teams is highlighted.
