    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!

          Pulling Together
          For as much interest as teamwork and team-building generates, this book was particularly timely for me. Of all the stories and examples it contains, the story of the geese rings with so many people I speak to! It's wonderful, true (so they say) and timeless. Thanks.

            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.
