Reviews - What do customers think about 17 Essential Qualities Of A Team Player (Repack)?
Great book to use to facilitate team discussion Feb 18, 2007
I used the 17 Essential Qualities of a Team Player as a book to use for team discussions affirming or confirming how the team would operate. The chapters are a quick read and the qualities described supporting a successful and harmonious workplace cover most required behaviors of a good team member.
While John Maxwell's material is mostly from non-profit experiences, the stories and quotes are relevant and applicable to corporate America just as much as in the non-profit settings. In some cases my team offered criticisms of the examples, but even in those cases the opportunity to have the team discuss and agree on the essential attributes of teamwork was a success I would not have achieved without the support of the book. I have not used the websites referred to in the book.
How Effective of a team player are you? Feb 2, 2007

This book is very well written. It should be required reading in Organizational Behavior and other Management courses.
Misleading? Nov 4, 2005
Many books and subjects taught should have a disclaimer stating that the information you are absorbing may not apply to the real world.
The only way I see the information in this book working is in a small company on its' way up. Im not saying that the information within is alltogether baseless, however, there are more than a few times while reading where I wondered what would be my fate if I had someone with a secretive agenda within my group of subordinates and I began to let down my guard just enough for them to knife me in the back? This book never suggests looking out for oneself. Dont get me wrong, trust is good, but you cannot allowed yourself to be disarmed by it.
Is the book worthy? ABSOLUTELY. All I am saying is that it should be taken with a grain of salt and not blindly adhered to.
not so surprising Apr 25, 2005
nothing new , a lot of generalities, i am a bit deceived by the book ...
