If you're managing a team, you know that emotional issues - such as lack of trust and commitment, unresolved conflicts, and the inability of individuals to understand how their actions impact others - can stop even the most promising groups from delivering great results. This book gives you powerful, proven exercises you can use to help you and your team:
  • identify individual and team mood
  • deal with anger and emotional triggers
  • avert, rather than avoid, conflict
  • encourage communication
  • overcome fear and other obstacles
  • understand and manage competition
  • honor differences
  • assess team strengths and weaknesses
  • pick up on cues from teammates
  • control the emotional climate of the team

The book follows each activity with a discussion of its purpose, how to use it, and a list of post-activity questions to help solidify each lesson.
