More about The Team Formula

The Culture Shaper

Stephen, the new Head of Corporate Sales following a restructure, quickly realises that his new role is much more complex than he could have ever imagined. The matrix demands new levels of collaboration, which threatens everyone’s old comfort zones, forcing them onto a cultural journey which some are ready and willing for, but some are definitely not.  Is the matrix just a tangled web of deceit? Or can it be disentangled?

 

“We are invited every day to work with organisations where leaders are well versed in processes and procedures but rarely successfully consider their culture as a success factor to be reckoned with. And yet, statistics show that one of the main reasons many mergers and acquisitions fail is that culture is overlooked and the results suffer as a result.”

 

The Purpose of The Team Formula

The story forces leaders to take a long hard look at themselves and ask the question: what choices am I making as a leader? How does this apply to me and my team? It engages and grips the reader whilst encouraging reflection, insightful learning and commitment to personal and team change. Readers can easily relate to the characters and real-life situations in our story. Everyone will recognise a part of themselves as well as their colleagues, which makes them want to know what’s going to happen next. It’s about the leader’s journey of development, as well as that of the team. Above all, this is a book about going from intellectual understanding to a change in behaviour.

 

Business Book Club
We recently had the pleasure of being invited to launch a new type of business networking club in London – a Business Book Club.  The idea behind the group it to take what used to be a regular business leaders network and give it a twist.  Senior leaders can discuss business and leadership issues and opportunities within the more relaxed framework of a particular book, and the discussion is led by the author of the book.

This gives members the opportunity to probe the authors around key issues that affect their businesses, and to open up group discussions that add a different perspective to the issues.  We found the event both interesting and rewarding.

If you would like to find out more about this new type of business networking and what it could do for your group, please email mandy@excellenceinleadership.co.uk.
