Teambuilding and motivational skills are of crucial importance in business and the leadership role in particular. As a writer on leadership topics, John Adair has been described as without doubt one of the foremost thinkers on the subject in the world (Sir John Harvey-Jones).

This book encapsulates John Adair's writing on these critical elements of any truly successful organisation. It develops his classic theory on Team, Task and Individual, and summarises all his writing on leadership and motivation and getting the best from people. It includes sections on being motivated oneself, selecting people, target setting and reward and recognition. John Adair's books have sold hundreds of thousands of copies. His writing combines depth and insight with hard-edged, practical techniques. You will find this book equally valuable whether you are beginning your career in management or looking for an expert refresher course.
