Business Novel on Energizing Self-Organizing Teams

About the Book

Did you ever wonder why some teams thrive on impediments and others wait helplessly for management to find solutions? The language of leaders plays a vital role in creating self-organizing teams and avoiding taught helplessness.

In this business novel, we show how Marianne – a driven business unit manager – wants to energize her teams. With the help of her coach Lydia, she starts seeing the patterns that frustrate teamwork and learns simple positive communication styles to increase team ownership of the way of working. Using simple exercises and visual techniques, step by step, she tackles the obstacles on her path.

Only read this book if you are prepared to challenge your mental models of leading teams and organizations.
