5Excellent resource
By dockengal
Real life situations and solutions. Simple guidance for leading a team to greatness. Very easy read and plenty of excellent direction. I've never highlighted so many things in one book and written myself notes on the pages about my specific examples the reading is addressing, and action I can take.

4Its a Textbook
By K. Rees
Good book. Expands on contemporary leadership ideology and how it relates to teams and leading teams. This is the 4th ed. for Thompson and her experiences and credentials make for a very a reliable view on how teams should be created, adjusted, and lead. In the end it is a textbook with up to date research and case studies; easily applicable in an academic setting.
