My team needs help!

-but is it really my team-or is it me?

After a global pandemic it feels like leading teams has never been more complex. Aspiring leaders are often confused about their role: Do I exist to bring out the best in my team? Or does my team exist to meet my goals? Experienced leaders are left exhausted managing the web of relationships, performance issues, and communication styles of a diverse team.

Sadly, we've all been in less-than-perfect teams, where people communicate poorly, let negative assumptions simmer, put their own needs first, and quickly become defensive. Additionally, expectations are unclear, and blame is easier than responsibility.

That's why we developed Sharpening Teams-a toolbox of powerful leadership models made accessible through the eyes of Pamela, an executive leader facing a complex set of organisational challenges. Take the journey with Pamela as she adapts her leadership style, enabling her team to learn new ways of thinking, problem solving, collaborating, and developing trust through openness and vulnerability.

Whether you perceive your team as already sharp, completely dull, or somewhere in-between, this book is designed to challenge and equip you to become the most effective team leader you can be.
