Acerca de


Don't rock the boat. Don't make waves. Don't offend anyone. There's a palpable feeling that clouds many team meetings and keeps them from being productive: over-politeness. And while the conflict that naturally exists in most organizations hasn't gone away, it manifests itself in passive-aggression, mediocrity, and a molasses-like inability to get anything done.

Nice Teams Finish Last provides the antidote to this all-too-common tendency, giving managers, team leaders and members, and facilitators the practical support they need to battle "the nice trap" and start getting results! The book helps readers encourage skills such as constructive criticism, honest communication, and the kind of conflict that drives innovation and quality without hurting feelings or creating enemies. From giving clear, sharp feedback, to effectively challenging others, this book provides the eye-opening tools teams need to achieve very nice results!

From the Back Cover:

Do you ever get the feeling that your team would be more productive if everyone would just say what it is they’re really thinking? Express their opinions without worrying about other people’s feelings, office politics, and the fear of pushing things off-track?

When it comes to working with others, we’re all taught not to make waves, and not to rock the boat. But when the tensions, conflicts, and differing opinions that naturally exist in every organization are left unspoken and unresolved, team meetings can be left in a cloud of mediocrity, passive-aggression, and a molasses-like inability to get anything done.

Nice Teams Finish Last reveals how you can pave the way for bold results by using open and honest communication to transform the way your team interacts. Filled with powerful exercises—as well as revealing self-assessments you can use to determine whether your team is being “too nice”—this practical, energizing book reveals how you and other team members can productively and positively exchange clear, sharp feedback...effectively challenge ideas without ruffling feathers...and unleash the kind of “good” conflict that drives innovation and quality without creating enemies.

They say there is no “I” in team. But there are a bunch of “me’s.” Nice Teams Finish Last shows you how to bring the different “me’s” in your team together...and achieve very nice results.
