They often fail to realize that their own involvement in team activities will promote trust and cooperation between them and their subordinates and will enhance their own reputation as effective managers. 1 Typically, we have seen newly formed teams look to upper management over and over to test the organization's commitment to team building. Managers must take special care to reiterate their belief in the team's future and to check critical offhand remarks or statements of frustration. Before proceeding, management must be aware of the benefits and the drawbacks of teams.

Many companies find that a union that formally opposes the use of teams often will not object to its members (employees) being part of a team if it is working on a specific problem. Experts (Schein, 1985; Hersey and Blanchard, 1988) all agree that there are four stages teams go through: the formation stage, in which members are trying to decide why they are there; the group-building stage, in which the team decides on its direction and control; a third stage, in which everyone starts to work together; and a final stage, in which the team can function efficiently.

The format follows the life cycle of a team: Getting Started, Team Meetings, Team Behavior, Problems of Fear and Control, Team Decision Making and Problem Solving, Evaluating and Rewarding Team Performance, and Training. This book was written for all types of teams, from multifunctional to self-managed, in both profit-making and nonprofit organizations. In addition, trainers and college faculty will find it a valuable reference for teaching team building skills to others. The book can be used in a variety of ways.
