Managing individuals is a hard enough task for most managers and leaders, but managing them in teams and making the end result effective is an even bigger challenge. In this book the authors offer us some practical steps with hosts of advice and tips and tools to help us along that journey. The book makes elegant use of person centred thinking, practices and tools in the format of an easy to follow model and programme. There are assessments and checklists to help along the way, and many real examples of the materials in use. This is a book of value not just to those starting out on the team development route, but for the more seasoned manager too, as it is packed with ideas to choose from, drawn from a wide range of experiences and sources. Whilst soundly based in theory and research, it is a very useable and pragmatic guide to improving team performance. -- Stephen Stirk, Director of Human Resources for the social care charity United Response

The writers offer a practical workbook with suggestions based on a person-centred approach... the authors emphasise the importance of identifying team roles based on an appreciation of an individual's abilities and motivations... The text is easy to read, providing case studies as exemplars and reflective exercises, and posing reflective questions that can be worked through.
While this book is helpful, the main audiences are those who work within a variety of contexts, such as service-providers, managers, practitioners, and students in the health and social-care fields.

-- The Revd Dr Sharon Prentis, Deputy Director for Research and Development for the Salvation Army * Church Times *
This book is a very practical guide designed to provide a clear and well illustrated example of how to define effective team work with just five themes and examples from health and community services across the charity and public sector... This essential manual is an invaluable resource for service providers, managers, practitioners and students involved in health and social care. In discussing multidisciplinary teamwork and those most effective components of this particular approach, this volume represents an important contribution to the person-centered healthcare literature and is, therefore, highly recommended to academics, clinicians and health policymakers alike. -- Margot Lindsay, Research Department of Mental Health Sciences * European Journal for Person Centered Healthcare *
