Charles Margerison first developed his renowned Team Management Wheel, with Dr Dick McCann, over 10 years ago. Since then, it has been successfully used as a practical tool by major commercial and government organizations in more than forty countries. Packed with case examples and applications, this new book applies the lessons learned from these organizations to provide team leaders, training managers and consultants with a practical guide to team leadership based on the principles of the Team Management Wheel. The author uses his background in business and consulting to bring together the key issues in a concise and readable volume based around the nine key team leadership skills of advising, innovating, promoting, developing, organizing, producing, inspecting, maintaining and linking. The hands-on approach enables managers to assess their own leadership and problem-solving skills, enhance team development, build linking and co-ordination skills across their teams and improve both their individual and team performance.
