An essential guide for managers and leaders on building resilient teams in turbulent times.

More and more organizations worldwide are using teams of employees to respond to adversity. Employees can no longer rely on their own knowledge, skills, and abilities to get their work done. Rather, employees have to work collaboratively with one another and combine their expertise to achieve the synergy and breakthrough thinking that is necessary to be successful at completing complex tasks in today’s dynamic environments.

Bradley L. Kirkman and Adam C. Stoverink provide in their new book the hands-on practical tips for building and leading resilient teams equipped to bounce back from today’s challenges. They highlight four team resources that are essential to any resilient team, including: team confidence, teamwork roadmaps, capacity to improvise, and psychological safety. These four resources are brought to life through compelling stories of teams that performed well in the face of adversity—and a few that didn’t. They also provide leaders with step-by-step guidance for how to grow these resources in their own teams, whether they’re in-person, remote, or hybrid. This book delivers all the tools necessary to build and lead resilient teams that are virtually unbreakable.

The book is published by Stanford University Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.
