You can fix your team!

Working in a dysfunctional team is frustrating and stressful. No one wants to show up every day to a team that is constantly distracted by in-fighting, dragging each other down, disrupting one another’s performance, performing poorly, engaging in unethical behaviour. If this sounds familiar to you, you are not alone!

Fix Your Team book: A guided approach to fixing your team

From decades of experience in helping employers to identify and address team dysfunction, we know that managers and supervisors are often frustrated by a lack of time, experience, resources or good advice on how to deal with these problems. Meanwhile employees working in the team feel powerless and fearful of the consequences to their job security if they speak up.

Rose Byrant-Smith & Grevis Beard, co-authors of Fix Your Team

That’s why we wrote this book.

The guided approach we introduce in this book can be applied by anyone who is working in, managing or advising a dysfunctional team. Whether you are a team member, in a service function, a team manager or a more senior executive with a dysfunctional team in your portfolio, this book will help. It will teach you how to identify dysfunction in your team, understand what is really going on, work out what to do about it and get everyone back to work.

Read the Fix Your Team book to:

  • develop confidence in your analysis of team problems
  • learn what tools are available to shift a destructive, inefficient or unethical dynamic
  • identify which tool will work best, including the best use of your resources
  • develop the business case for resourcing an intervention, and win support from the top (including budget) to take action
  • build the buy-in and respect of your team members.
