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.”

10 Rules for Effective Teams
I manage a financial advisory branch composed of two firms recently merged. I gave all team members a copy of Pulling Together on our first year anniversary. I still see the book proudly and prominently displayed on many desks. Needless to say, it was money well spent and a fabulous tool for team building.

        Pulling Together
        "Pulling Together" is a highly entertaining, educational, inspirational book on teamwork that takes the reader beyond the simple clich�_. He offers specific, pragmatic, easy to follow steps in order to create successful teams. Whether you are a professional in a high powered corporation, a member of an athletic team, or the leader of a civic committee, I strongly recommend "Pulling Together".
