Most leadership in today’s churches comes from “solo practitioners”--individuals who bear the burden of providing all the direction the ministry they direct requires. Inevitably, this results not only in burned-out leaders, but underutilized lay people who merely attend and observe rather than becoming actively engaged in ministry, growing in discipleship, and freeing professional staff to focus on pastoral priorities. In The Power of Team Leadership, noted researcher George Barna demonstrates the incredible difference lay-team leadership can make in a church’s ministry. Based on Barna’s latest national studies, the book sets forth clearly what churches need to know in order to recruit, train, and deploy lay leadership teams for maximum effectiveness in the Kingdom of God.

One Power for All, All for One Team...the Power of Teamwork The power of teamwork is not one to be sneezed at. Especially in today work's environment, you will need to work well and get along with others in order to strive for a common goal. Yet, there are those who still prefer to be the lone wolf of the pack...and that person may even be you or somebody you work with. After all, why work in a team when you can work by yourself and have full free reign and control to do whatever you want 100% to your liking without others’ interference? (Creative differences, anybody?) * Firstly, it's not always about you...in fact, it should never be about one’s personal self-interests. * Secondly, one as a TEAM can accomplish more than one as an INDIVIDUAL. That much is obvious that you’ll get more done in less time. Then why aren’t more people team players? There are common problems that can arise from working on any team, thus making certain folks loathe it or avoid it due to multiple huge egos, clashing personalities, disagreeable approaches, different thinking styles, or simply one’s natural introversion...all of which are understandable. As much we would like to take pride in our self-sufficient independence, we are still humans and can’t do everything by ourselves. We all need a helping hand once in a while, so utilize your strengths and delegate your weaknesses. This particularly rings true for any leadership or team management role requiring handling and pulling a group of people together as one when bringing any task to fruition. Then how do you get people who have strengths in different areas to eagerly collaborate with everybody else as a unified team to achieve success? This type of leadership power for effective teamwork can be found in “The One of Power.” * How to build and lead a team effectively for a common cause. * How to get rid of initial team hurdles to allow everyone to get along. * How to motivate each member at their core desire to reignite productivity. * How to create a desirable environment with a unique communication culture. * How to form family bonds with the entire team by having special get-togethers. * And team-building activities that can be performed for any team, and much more! The “one of power” is indeed your “one team” that when united can bring about unlimited power to work miracles. Above all else, the feeling of universal camaraderie from working together will make it all that much more rewarding. Have your dream team now!

This is due to the human element of those exemplary followers, or true amplifiers.

There has been little new work or ideas on “change management” in the business world over the past decade.

Many organizations believe that high-functioning teams hold the key to breakthrough thinking, superior customer service, and high-quality products. But, all too often, leaders and managers fail to support teams so that they can deliver on their promises. For instance, many leaders ask for teamwork, but only reward and evaluate individual performance; focus on the group at the expense of individual members; or leave team members to sort out their differences, leading to the formation of unhealthy cliques. In 3D Team Leadership, Bradley L. Kirkman and T. Brad Harris present a dynamic new model for maximizing team performance. Previous books have treated teams as groups of people working interdependently, an approach that overlooks two crucial components: the individuals who make up the team and the subgroups that form within and between teams. To create a fuller portrait of team behavior, Kirkman and Harris propose an innovative "3D" framework that takes into account all three factors. Drawing on their own research, best-in-class studies, and extensive consulting, they show leaders how to properly diagnose the state of their teams, hone in on the element that needs attention, and seamlessly shift focus among the three components of teamwork as time goes on. Delivering practical guidance rooted in scholarship, 3D Team Leadership is a thoughtful and straightforward guide for the complex challenge of teaming today.

Instead, Program Management Leadership: Creating Successful Team Dynamics examines various leadership approaches and illustrates the value of effective leadership styles in Program Management for achieving program and project success. Identifying critical success factors specific to program management, the book focuses on effective leadership styles and the power of teamwork in exceeding expectations. It starts by examining various leadership styles and traits—providing helpful insights on the tough choices leaders are often forced to make. It describes effective methods to help leaders work with stakeholders and team members to set visions and objectives so that program goals are achieved with greater frequency. Next, the book further examines teams and explains how to bring people from various experience levels, geographic diversity, and cultural backgrounds together setting aside their own personal objectives and instead working towards a common goal and vision. Presenting recent research on leadership, it highlights the situational factors that leaders face and offers approaches enabling leaders to modify their style from one based on personal choice to one that can adapt to overcome the challenges that will arise. From there, the book describes how to build and maintain a High Performing Team (HPT). It also describes how to instill a competitive spirit and culture of cooperation and mutual respect in your team to make sure your team remains focused on the right things. This book is an ideal resource for anyone who understands the value of the tools provided by PMI® and is searching for the factors that separate good program and project managers from truly great ones. If you are focused on self-actualization and continuous improvement, then this is the book that can help drive your program initiatives to the highest possible standards.

The concept of bministry teamsb is rapidly taking hold in churches, but just what are they and how do they work? "Transform Your Church with Ministry Teams" outlines what effective ministry teams look like, describes what they can offer local congregations, and gives concrete step-by-step suggestions for making them happen. The power of ministry teams lies in their unique capacity to generate genuine Christian fellowship, nurture disciples, develop leaders, and mobilize people for ministry. While traditional church leadership organizations concentrate almost exclusively on task, policy, and program, ministry teams are designed to enhance faith development and, thus, ministry effectiveness. E. Stanley Ott explores three main areas of ministry-team development. First, he explains the philosophy behind ministry teams and discusses the issues involved in shifting from committee-based to team-based ministry. Second, he tells how to begin ministry teams, including how to identify team leaders and members and how to determine their roles. Third, he looks at the details of ministry-team life, including ways to build team fellowship, foster discipleship and communication within teams, and accomplish specific ministry tasks. Filled with wise, time-tested advice, including four how-to appendixes, this book will help pastors and lay leaders transform the life of their church or Christian organization.
