- Special edition for the Volvo Ocean Race!
The Volvo Ocean Race is the Everest of sailing. A race you cannot sail - let alone win! - on your own. Without a high performing team any skipper would be chanceless. But how do you build a good team, how to create a high performing team? Which buttons do you push to help a team reach its full potential? How do you avoid the well known pitfalls of groupthink, mediocrity and political games?
In our book Improving Teams we describe ways to do this. This book has been used by many team leaders, trainers and HR-practitioners to get the best from their teams.
In this Volvo Ocean Race version of our book we added real life case stories and images from the Race and from Schouten Global's coach Anje-Marijcke van Boxtel, who coaches Team Brunel. She shares her experience in coaching the team to high performance.
Also Bouwe Bekking, Team Brunel's skipper, shares his experience and vision in getting the best out of his team. Furthermore, Volvo Ocean Race leaders Knut Frostad and Tom Touber make contributions based on their vast experience with the race in sailing and managing crews and teams.
All these stories were added to enrich the content, to make the connection between theory and practice and between the Race and day to day business. Because getting the best out of teams is as much the key to success for modern organisations as it is to success in the Volvo Ocean Race!
