Book Review: Team Building with Clear Results for Busy Managers by Nauris Svilka
This is a very quick read. In fact, the book in PDF form is only 59 pages. The first part of the book spends an enormous amount of space telling the reader why what the book has to say is important. This is sort of like a preacher preaching to his congregation regarding the importance of attending church. These people already know how important it is; that is why they are there. This being said, the book is a worthwhile read. After the sales pitch about why the book is important is over, the book does not waste any more of the reader’s time. From that point forward, everything is presented in a quick, easy to understand manner which makes the book very readable and enjoyable to read. I got so involved in what the book had to say that I did not realize how close I was to finishing it when I read the last word.
The book provides the reader with five, easy to follow exercises that will aid the business manager in very inexpensive, simple exercises that can be implemented practically anywhere. Team members would not feel like their intelligence has been questioned when managers utilize these exercises. If the reader implements the suggestions made in the book, it is quite probable that team members would not realize that team building had taken place.
