Superteams

By Matthew Syed
Authors:
Matthew Syed
Great teams rarely happen by accident; they happen by design. And that design is rooted in the motivational and strategic bonds that tie them together. But what makes true cohesion? How do you create the right combination of skills in team members? Does information flow between them in a fluent way? Are their actions harmoniously coordinated?In a journey to understand 'Superteams', this book takes us into the killing fields of Iraq after the 2003 invasion, the flourishing of knowledge in Renaissance Italy, the Death Zone at the summit of Mount Everest, a nuclear submarine patrolling the world's oceans, a rugby team dressed all in black, the high-tech industries of Silicon Valley, and in to the Manchester United dressing room during the reign of Sir Alex Ferguson. Drawing from the latest research in psychology, systems theory, economics, and neuroscience, Matthew Syed, the No.1 bestselling author of Black Box Thinking, shows how environments can be consciously engineered for teams to gel. And how, in high performing teams, the knowledge, ideas and information used by different individuals can yield successes far beyond the strategic skill or performance of any single member. In our increasingly complex world we all need to learn how to maximize our collective potential - across industry, the military, technology, business, politics, sport and academia - and turn our teams in to "Superteams".

    By Susan Calman
    Authors:
    Susan Calman

Cheer Up Love, Susan's first book, had a clear aim: to help people understand depression. Sunny Side Up has a similarly clear path: to persuade people to be kinder to each other and spread more joy. These are extremely difficult and confusing times - people are cross and shouty. It's exhausting! But more than anything, people like Susan, people who don't hate other people, are apologising for the way that they think. Susan wants to make sure that they don't. That it's ok to love people, that kindness is something wonderful and brilliant and to bring on the joy. So the mission is simple. To get the nation to join her in not being negative. To bring back joy, kindness and community, to find that joy in the little things in life and defeat the hate and fear. Susan is a one-woman army of hope and joy, and she's ready to lead the nation in a different direction. This is her Calmanifesto of Happiness.
