    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.

    In Pulling Together, author John J. Murphy presents the ten rules for high-performance teams in an engaging way that will inspire and motivate team building in your organization. These rules are further illustrated in "Lessons from the Geese", a powerful story about teamwork in nature. You can further remind yourself and your team of the importance of teamwork with the Pulling Together Framed Inspirational Print!

    Totally Recommend This Book!
    Pulling Together is the go-to guide book if your team is struggling with becoming teammates or need a boost. It opened my eyes to behaviors that I can see not only in myself, but others around me. Such a positive and thought provoking tome. I would recommend this book to not only working folks, but also to family members who are challenged in being a teammate to their loved ones.
