Book Summary:

THE UGLY TRUTH: Most organizations score horribly in equipping employees to work together and deliver on their collective potential, despite the fact that teamwork is more important in the 21st century than it ever was before. From over 63,000 hours observing leaders and teams in more than 30 companies located in 20 countries, Ross and Paccione identify how even well-intentioned leaders sabotage their own best efforts at developing high-performing teams – and what they must do differently to succeed.

THE PROMISE: Regardless of your position, or whether your team operates in person or virtually, during the first 10 minutes of your next meeting, you can start, transform, and accelerate productive teamwork. The proven, sophisticated, and practical method in ONE Team equips you to activate the brilliant potential your team possesses. What will you do with your next 10 minutes? Start – and move the world.
