Top of career professionals

You'll already have been part of great and perhaps even not so great teams. Now you're in a more strategic role , scenarios are more complex, and you are often dealing with uncertainty. You want more engagement, and to help people find more meaning in their work. This book will give you a fresh way of engaging with others to become more skilful supporting the people around you to be more collaborative.

What is the book about?

Different types of work require us to work together differently, and our behaviour and leadership varies in different scenarios:

  • well managed tasks assigned to individuals;
  • the tight co-ordination of work, processes and roles; or
  • collaboration to generate new understanding and innovation.

This book describes and explains the range of behaviours we can use when we work together, including the jump from team work to collaboration when we need to solve complex, unprecedented problems, both round the table and remotely.
