Build Better Teams

Creating Winning Teams in the Digital Age

By George Karseras

How Today’s Highly Effective Leaders Develop High Performing Teams

Build Better Teams is a simple, memorable, and easy to apply team development code for the new leaders of the modern age who are expected to manage high performing teams, including virtual team building management skills.

A new business culture code. Teams today are more complex than ever before. With new team leader responsibilities like diversity training, virtual working, mental health awareness, individualism, and more, modern team leadership is in dire need of a new code. Author George Karseras, executive team development coach and founder of TeamUp, has coined such a code that he calls the “TeamUp Playbook”. The code is a four-step sequence that any team leader can follow to produce high performing teams. TeamUp Playbook is a proven formula for how to be a great team leader today.

Leadership management with scientific rigor. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a magic code for leaders to motivate a team to peak performance? Combining over twenty years of experience in team development, Build Better Teams breaks down the historically poor track record of team performance and engagement in organizations, references academic studies, and equips leaders with practical tools and techniques. Inside, Karseras includes stories, examples, and tips in a casual, easy to read format. Whether you’re looking for ways to inspire teams or become an efficient remote leader, you’ll find answers to questions like:

  • What can expect to be the impact of virtual working and digital transformations on my team?
  • How do I use a road map that science confirms works for all teams?
  • How do I build a greater sense of community into the organization and, eventually, the world?

If you liked books like Unleashed, The Culture Code, or Team of Teams, then you’ll love Build Better Teams.

#1 New Release in Job Hunting

Successful women show how they reclaimed and rebuilt their personal power and careers after being fired from a job and being rendered powerless by their employers.

Practical job loss recovery tools for women. When women get fired, it is often devastating, traumatic, and isolating. We experience a sudden powerlessness that can destroy our confidence and feelings of self-worth. We grieve. We feel broken. It affects our self-esteem, our financial well-being, our professional identity, and our ability to look for other work―in short, it affects our entire way of life. How, then, does a woman navigate the emotional impact of this event? With other women.

You are not alone. In Betrayed by Work, authors Julia Erickson, MBA, and Suzanne Vosburg, PhD, bear witness to the stories of women just like you―and just like them.
