product description

“Great discoveries and achievements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds.” ~ Alexander Graham Bell

At the center of every high-performance team is a common purpose—a mission that rises above and beyond each of the individual team members. To be successful, the team’s interests and needs come first. This requires “we-opic” vision (“What’s in it for we?”), a challenging step up from the common “me-opic” mind-set.

Pulling Together captures the essence of teamwork. It takes what can be a complex topic and presents the ten rules in a way that anyone can understand. If you have each member of your team read it, and then discuss how each rule applies to your organization, your chances of “pulling together” will be greatly improved!

Author John J. Murphy presents the ten rules for high-performance teams in an engaging way that every person in your organization can understand. John is a highly recognized author, speaker and management consultant who has helped some of the world’s leading organizations create environments that value and reward teamwork. He has also appeared on over 400 radio and television stations and his work has been featured in 50 newspapers nationwide.

Mac Anderson had this to say: “John Murphy has written a classic on the number one key to any organization’s success…Pulling Together. Every person in your company should read it.”

        Highly Recommended
        Really enjoyed watching the CD. My grandson's rowing team won the gold in rowing in national competition. Feel schools and any university coaches could use Pulling Together as a resource or textbook.

          Great Book
          I have used the book and DVD at my morning meetings. It is simple but contains a great deal of positive information. The DVD was inspirational and will be used at all of our new employee orientations.
