“Teaming: How Organizations Learn, Innovate, and Compete in the Knowledge Economy” by Amy C. Edmondson at the Harvard Business School.
Amy captures the essentials of team building and execution in this well researched and very practical resource. Chapter 4 is worth the price of the book itself. We often here about the effectiveness of teams, and their purpose, goals, leadership, and so on. But Amy addresses a rarely-emphasized question: How safe is the organizational culture and the environment for teaming? This section tackles hierarchy, trust, psychological safety, and creating a safe place for teaming.
