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?

The Strong Black Woman

By

A Health Crisis of Major Proportions Among Black Women Generated from Systemic Racism  

#1 New Release in Reference

Meet Black women who have learned though hard lessons the importance of self-care and how to break through the cultural and sometimes family resistance to seeking therapy and professional mental health care.

The Strong Black Woman Syndrome. For generations, in response to systemic racism, Black women and African American culture created the persona of the Strong Black Woman, a woman who, motivated by service and sacrifice, handles, manages, and overcomes any problem, any obstacle.  The syndrome calls on Black women to be the problem-solvers and chief caretakers for everyone in their lives. Never buckling, never feeling vulnerable, and never bothering with their pain.

Black women face a hidden mental health crisis of anxiety and depression. To be a Black woman in America is to know that you cannot protect your children or guarantee their safety, that your value is consistently questioned, and that even being “twice as good” is often not good enough. Consequently, Black women disproportionately experience anxiety and depression. Studies now conclusively connect racism and mental health―and physical health.

Time to take care of your emotional health. Because you deserve to be emotionally healthy for yourself and those you love. More and more young Black women are re-examining the Strong Black Woman syndrome and engaging in self-care practices that positively change their lives.

In The Strong Black Woman, hear the stories of African American women who:

  • Asked for help when they needed it
  • Built lives that offer healing every day
  • Learned to accept that healing

If you have read The Unapologetic Guide to Black Mental HealthThe Racial Healing Handbook, or Black FatigueThe Strong Black Woman should be your next read.
