High Impact Teams: Where Healthy Meets High Performance by Lance Witt is an encouraging book about developing high-achieving teams. Some of the topics that the book discusses include building trust in your teams, bringing a sense of balance in your teams, and crafting a team culture. I like how the book emphasizes the importance of defining and crafting a clear culture in your teams.
By examining how successful teams work, the author is able to show what makes teams thrive. I especially liked the chapter that talked about transitioning through difficult issues that occur in your teams; the key of maintaining good teams and companies is not merely to build them up to begin with, but to to help them withstand trials and tensions. The team discussion questions that Witt provides at the end of each chapter help readers reflect on each chapter’s material.
