The Team Management Systems E-Book Series was designed to bring together the main concepts that form the basis of the Team Management Systems ‘body of knowledge’. They cover 25 years of work by Charles Margerison and myself, separately and together, where we have tried to explain why individuals and teams have constant problems in achieving high performance. This series brings together the many explanations and models that can be used as the basis for improvement in personal, team and organizational effectiveness.
The Language of Teamwork introduces the core of the TMS suite, where the three integrated models of teamwork are developed – the Types of Work Wheel, the four work preferences scales and the Team Management Wheel. We explain the ideas of job demand, work and role preference, and Linking.
Linking is expanded in Linking Leadership, where we describe the 13 key features of a Linking Leader. Developing Teams and High Energy Teams apply these concepts to various aspects of teamwork.
The Workplace Pyramid introduces the ideas of values and risk as personal constructs that impact behavior at work, and these are further developed in Values in the Workplace and Stumbling Blocks or Stepping Stones? Dealing with risk at work.
We started our research 25 years ago and are still going strong. The concepts and content of these e-books are not only still relevant but stand tall among current trends of the HR industry. We hope that this series allows you to explore the many facets of the TMS suite and to apply them in developing improved performance in the workplace.
