Building an effective team is as much an art as a science. The principal reason for this dichotomy is the involvement of people.
The management of people represents the science and involves time-tested practices and procedures. The leadership of people represents the art and taps into the nature of humans, their talents, creativity, and energy. The key player in the team-building process is the team leader.
He is the person who trains (with or without other trainers), cultivates, and motivates the team. His goal is to create what William Shakespeare described in Henry V, "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers."
This Knowledge Pill will discuss both the science and the art aspects and will provide proven, practical ways to build an effective team.
