About the event

Having led teams for 10 years and subsequently spent 20 years helping teams to achieve high-performance teamwork around the world and spoken at over 500 conferences about teamwork, Nick Fewings realised, based on feedback from team members and delegates, that there weren’t any books that helped both individuals and teams to understand the importance of knowing both WHO was in their team, specifically, the behavioural and technical skills that individuals had, nor HOW effective their teamwork was, both vital, if high-performance teamwork is to be achieved.

Team Lead Succeed is for anyone who works in a team, be it an operational team, project team or leadership team, and who wants to make a positive difference to the effectiveness of their teamwork.

“I believe this would definitely give value to a team or leader reading it. It’s really easy to read, whatever role you have in a team, and I love the fact there’s some practical take aways from it.”

A pre-launch review of the book

The Focus. The 21 chapters of Team Lead Succeed are packed with practical learning, real-life stories to bring the learning to life, and suggestions for you to consider implementing in your team, all focused on raising awareness of the importance of knowing the WHO and the HOW of teamwork. In addition, there is a chapter about leadership.

The Format. Although Team Lead Succeed contains more than 260 pages it has been designed so readers can enjoy the learning and apply it in their teams, bit by bit.

Based on feedback, there are also elements of humour within it, and whilst there is some theory included, the main aim is to provide learning and suggestions that can be applied practically in a team, helping it become even more effective.

Red Flags, Questions and Ping Moments. In the majority of chapters, there are observations about what happens when an element of teamwork is not working well, questions to consider in terms of how your team may be performing and space for the reader to jot down any ideas that spring to mind, whilst they are still fresh in their mind.

“I’ve been saying this for a long time, that teams need to spend more time in understanding how effective their teamwork is. Great teamwork just doesn’t happen, it happens in teams that work at being great. It is critical to the success of organisations, both large and small, and even more relevant and important, as change sweeps through businesses, due to recent events. I hope that Team Lead Succeed helps you and your team achieve the success it deserves.”

Nick Fewings, Teamologist, Ngagementworks

Author Nick Fewings, Director of Ngagementworks, calls himself a teamologist, someone who specialises in the study of the dynamics of teamwork, using this knowledge to help teams become more effective.

Nick is also the creator of the Team DyNAmics Model, used by teams to measure their effectiveness in 16 areas of teamwork. This allows teams to understand whether they are dysfunctional, average or high performing.

He has facilitated team development with hundreds of teams and profiled thousands of team members. He has also delivered motivational keynote presentations at over 500 conferences around the world, sharing the knowledge he has amassed over 30 years.

Team Lead Succeed is based on what he has learned and how he coaches teams worldwide.
