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.”

Pulling Together
I have yet to use the book for team developing but it appears all that I needed. I like that it comes along with the questions and examples to use for teamwork with staff input and their own expectations. I did not receive a silicone bracelet with this order as advertised but, this is not a concern to me. The cd was included. Thank you. Eyvonne Russ

    We purchased these wonderful little books for staff gifts and are delighted with them! We've ordered more to give to our PTO and Governing Board because we feel that they are very thoughtful gifts and are received well by everyone. Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

      I found this book to be very informative and helpful. I was able to develop an action plan based on the helpful information and am also giving it to teammates to read as well. I look forward to my next order so that I can continue my personal development.
