His emotional confidence and creativity enabled him to transfer prior knowledge seamlessly to new endeavors. He exemplifies the adaptable team member, someone creative who can learn, has a sense of security and knows how to be flexible. Several of these qualities overlap with each other in multiple ways, leading to some redundant points throughout the course of the book.
Overall, I enjoyed this book, and even despite my several nitpicks, I do recommend it for any person who actively participates in a team of any sort to read as it will help you and your team to get better in one way or another. With John's training course you can turn your department into the flagship of the organization in no time!
A lot of points made throughout this book also seemed to be common knowledge and common sense, but there were also several points that were very insightful and helpful that I will definitely try to utilize in my teamwork-related activities.
May 24, Adam Busuttil rated it it was ok Eh typical leadership text. See prices.
Maxwell then briefly discusses in the rest of the chapter. First, it helps team leaders identify early on, potential all-star team members. I think that, because every single person will have to take part in a team or group during their lifetime, this book can be read by everyone, regardless of demographic.
I did like the real world anecdotes, but all in all pretty self explanatory qualities. Learning the 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player serves two powerful needs. Second, current team members discover what they need to do to help create a better team.
