Item description for 17 Indisputable Laws Of Teamwork Workbook by John C. Maxwell...

A companion workbook to the best-selling guide by the same name offers practical exercises and application suggestions that can help team leaders implement the author's "17 Laws" into their work and personal lives. Original.

Publishers Description

"The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork" has quickly become one of John Maxwell's bestselling books on leadership. Now, in this companion workbook, Dr. Maxwell provides a tool every person can use to adapt the 17 Laws to leadership at home, work, and church.

From Publishers Weekly
Maxwell continues his grand project of systematizing motivational lore in this fervent workbook. Rehashing the teamwork catechism he explored in The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, he reminds us of the importance of vision and values, the dangers of egotism, bad apples and malingerers, and the necessity of dedication to collective will. Designed to be used, in part, by employees in a corporate team setting, the workbook features short inspirational or cautionary tales (a vignette about sherpa Tenzing Norgay teaches us that "the need for teamwork elevates" at high altitudes, while disgraced Exxon Valdez captain Joe Hazelwood embodies the proverbial weakest link) followed by vague writing exercises ("How can you become more proactive in your personal growth?"), self-evaluative check-lists ("I am willing to give up my personal rights for the greater good of the team") and "Take Action" assignments ("Confess your error, ask for forgiveness, and make it right.") Maxwell may be the guru of teamwork, but this primer on group-think-with its tone pitched somewhere between a revival meeting and a human resources seminar-feels decidedly less than inspirational.

Reviews - What do customers think about 17 Indisputable Laws Of Teamwork Workbook?

Good mix of factoids, inspiration and leadership pointers  Nov 30, -0001
Building on the successful formula of his earlier work, author John C. Maxwell (The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership) has delineated 17 "laws" for managers who want to develop successful teams. That number may be arbitrary, but Maxwell successfully uses his laws as a springboard to weave together inspiring tales from Navy Seals, mountain climbers, Colin Powell, George Washington, Jimmy Carter, major league coaches and others into punchy chapters that any aspiring leader can use. This book provides the right mix of factoids, inspiration and leadership pointers to make it a bestseller. Even better, coaches and leaders who use these tips should be able to build better teams. We recommend this book to coaches, mentors and team leaders.
The "laws" are indisputable for a reason  Nov 30, -0001
From the favorable reviews, I assumed that this would be an informative book. However, this is not the case. I learned very little in the course of reading the book, and here is why:

The laws are obvious. Anyone who has ever been part of a team and given even a little thought as to what elements make a team function well will be unsurprised by the list. The reason that the author says the laws are "indisuptable," is that the laws are so obvious that anyone can see that they seem to generally hold.

Don't waste your time with this book. Instead, check out "First, Break all the Rules," which is an innovative work that addresses management issues (including teamwork).
Very helpful  Nov 30, -0001
I quite thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was a great read. Working in a team to acheive results through facilitation, motivation and the ability to work others is greatly defined in this book. Excellent.
the easy 17 laws  Nov 30, -0001
I found the book The 17 indisputable laws of Teamwork to be an easy read. I felt the book related to the common person very well. John C Maxwell uses numerous language and memory techniques that help to create a reading experience that the reader will be able to remember long after the last page had been turned. This book was separated into 19 different chapters. The first of which is simply an introduction. The next 17 chapters are separated into what John C Maxwell considers the 17 components needed to make a good team. The final chapter is what Maxwell calls his "Afterword" and this just wraps up the book. Each of the 17 chapters is entitled with the law that will be the focus of that chapter. The chapters all start out with a brief description or explanation of the law. The second part of the chapter is two or more examples of how this law is implemented in general society. Then there are supporting examples or small situations that support the law. The last part of the chapter is where Maxwell explains the reason that this law is a law. The only flaw that this book seems to contain is how Maxwell puts everything in laymen's terms. In many characteristics this can be construed as a good thing however when it is done to the point of this extreme it makes the reader almost feel like they are not gaining much by reading the book. The one concrete thing that every reader is guaranteed to walk away with is a general understanding of what aspects make a successful team, however there is a good chance that many people will not walk away with more than what they opened the book with. I still believe that this was a good book however it could have used some more technical terms and some more key facts.
17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork book review  Nov 30, -0001
In the 17 Indisputable Laws Of Teamwork, John Maxwell focuses on building a winning team using strategies based on interviews with some of the world's top CEO's. It is 265-page self-help type, in which he describes the 17 laws to be used as a guide by individuals in any setting, whether it is business or personal. Maxwell writes the book using simple language trying his best to connect with a large audience.
Maxwell breaks the book into 17 chapters in which each chapter represents a different law. In each, he includes the essentials for teamwork followed by suggestions and how to apply them. In each chapter Maxwell includes two main examples and then several smaller examples related to the topic.
Maxwell starts the book explaining the law of significance and writes that one is too small a number to achieve greatness. He works through every law although some of the 17 are quite obvious. Some are learned at an early age and some are just common sense not only for a "team player," but anyone, in any type of relationship. For example, law number 9 reads: The Law of Countablitly, teammates must be able to count on each other when it counts. This type of common sense information is spread evenly throughout Maxwell's book. Another example of Maxwell's not so unique language is written into law number 8: The Law of the Bad Apple. The subtitle then reads: Rotten attitudes ruin a team. This chapter's main point "Attitudes have the power to lift up or tear down a team," seem too obvious and make the chapter useless and boring.
Maxwell closes the book by explaining that good chemistry cannot occur until all 17 laws or strategies are applied. I feel this book was overall an easy to read guide with good examples and even better suggestions.
