Teams at the Top Unleashing the Potential of Both Teams and Individual Leaders
by Jon R. Katzenbach (1998)

True teams are rare at the most senior management levels, and with good reason, writes Katzenbach. "Teams are seldom the fastest way for a group with an experienced, capable leader to ‘get where they are going,’ particularly if the leader has been there before." Nevertheless, executive teams that learn to integrate “team discipline” with “single- leader discipline” can be rewarded with exceptional performance and tools that are especially effective to deal with major disruptive events. Katzenbach is a foremost authority on teams, and although it has been around awhile, Teams at the Top belongs in the library of any senior executive who even remotely considers pushing team thinking with a senior executive team.
