Teams That Win

A Playbook for Managers Learning to be Coaches

by Rick Adams

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
TEAMS THAT WIN teaches business management using the sport of basketball as a model to describe a system and structure that enables empowerment, accountability and teamwork in the business environment.
The book also addresses the crucial element of the system: the manager taking on the role of coach. This role differs significantly from the functions of the organizational manager in yesterday’s traditional hierarchy. But for the Teams That Win approach to be truly effective, the manager must learn and live these “manager as coach” behaviors. The concepts presented here are not new to management theory. What is new is the use of basketball as a model to make these concepts easier to see, understand and implement.
