I follow the 6 Habits of Highly Effective Teams model not simply because it works so well, but also because it is so sensible, so easily understood by team members, and so implementable. The book is impressive in how applicable it is to real situations, in real organizations, involving real team-building issues. I return to it often to get grounded once again in the core principles of teamwork that Kohn and O’Connell advocate.” —Dr. Laila El Sayed, project engineer, Dupont iTechnologies In the modern organization, considerable responsibility and authority are delegated to and exercised by teams. Teams plan and deliver client projects and address a wide variety of internal company needs, such as strategic planning, system improvements, and operational decision-making. While any group that is brought together for a common purpose can be labeled a “team,” what characteristics make a team truly effective? How can the “whole” become greater than the sum of the group’s individual parts? How does a team perform better than individuals might perform on their own? In 6 Habits of Highly Effective Teams, management consultants Stephen E. Kohn and Vincent D. O’Connell provide a model of superior team performance that draws on the co-authors’ 50 years of combined organizational development experience and research. Highly effective teams, Kohn and O’Connell insist, are characterized less by the technical competencies of individual team members and more by widespread agreement and alignment with a small but extremely relevant set of team processes, values, and understandings. By focusing on and reinforcing a half dozen team “habits,” groups can develop the type of synergies that define collaborative excellence. The model is simple and practical, but it can yield extremely powerful results for any size organization. Paralleling their previous publication—6 Habits of Highly Effective Bosses—Kohn and O’Connell’l combined wisdom and practical exercises will show anyone trying to make a more potent contribution to an important team effort exactly what to do. Stephen E. Kohn is president of Work & People Solutions, a human resources management and training firm based in White Plains, NY. Mr. Kohn has more than 25 years of experience and has served for more than a decade as EVP of coaching firm Paul Sherman and Associates. His corporate clients range from large Fortune 500 firms such as Dupont and Pfizer to professional services firms such as Ernst & Young. Vincent D. O’Connell is a senior partner with Work & People Solutions, leading the consulting firm’s training and assessment efforts. He has led training courses nationwide and around the world, including recent programs in France and Malaysia
