How the skills of seamanship can be applied in business management.
Nowhere is the team more important than on a yacht at sea, where the very survival of the crew can depend on their ability to work together as a team, to follow orders when appropriate, and to contribute to solutions in often unpredictable circumstances. In this unusual guide to team management, the authors show how the techniques of crew management can be applied successfully in the management of business teams. They show how every aspect of team operation in a business environment is exactly reflected in the nautical world, and demonstrate how the nautical analogy helps focus on the essential processes of effective team management. Teams Unlimited provides an enlightening and highly instructive new approach to team management which is demonstrably practical in almost any business context...
"In Teams Unlimited, Dennis and Simon Coates have skilfully used the medium of the sea and sailing to develop the reader's knowledge of teamwork and leadership." Tony Wallington OBE, Chief Executive of Leadership Direct Ltd, and contracted Performance Director for the British Bobsleigh Association
