I’ve seen an acronym for TEAM that stands for Together Everyone Achieves More and it truly resonates with the lessons that you will find in this book. Throughout history you will find that anything of significance was accomplished through team effort because that is how God designed us. We are interdependent creatures hence we cannot survive alone.

The way Christianity has grown around the world started with our Lord Jesus Christ working with his twelve disciples which illustrates the importance of teamwork when pursuing any worthwhile goals. Teams have different dynamics to be addressed in order to get the best out of them and they are covered in John C. Maxwell’s book, “The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork”
You may be a part of a team that is struggling to achieve its goals and reading this book will help you identify what may be missing in your team’s make up. If you are a leader you will definitely benefit from the lessons shared here when you apply them to the best of your ability. It doesn’t matter what your profession may be; the principles of successful teamwork remain the same.
As you read the book you will begin to notice how the successful teams that we are familiar with embody most, if not all, the laws of teamwork. For me this was a really good and exciting read and it has helped me with leading teams to achieve the common goals.
Some key lessons found in this book are:
- All players have a place where they add the most value
- Winning teams have players who make things happen
- Rotten attitudes ruin a team
- The team fails to reach its potential when it fails to pay the price
Once again if you are looking to improve the performance of your teams get a copy of this book and share the post to empower other people with the same knowledge. As always, if you have read the book before please comment below. Until next time,
