Help the Helper

Help the Helper:
Building a Culture of Extreme Teamwork
by Kevin Pritchard & John Eliot
HD58.7 .P7427 2012
New Arrivals, 2nd floor

Going along with the theme of the first ‘crunch time’ of the semester, you’re either writing a research paper or you’re working on a group project. Am I right? This week’s featured title explores how working together benefits everyone involved.

Pritchard, general manager of the Indiana Pacers, and Eliot, professor and consultant, bring the lessons of the court to the boardroom. The title borrows from the idea of filling the gaps to leave no avenue open on defense or opportunity lost on offense. They cover everything from how to promote the unselfishness required for this type of organization to the ways in which you assess its success / failure. The authors provide endless real-life examples from sports and business to demonstrate how effective and powerful their H2H concept can be.
