Build an A-Team: Play to Their Strengths and Lead Them Up the Learning Curve

Whitney Johnson

Do you want to have a high-performing team that strives for greatness, even in the face of uncertainty? Do you want to be a boss people love, while also driving high performance? Building morale and high performance are about engagement, and engagement is all about learning, argues Whitney Johnson. In over twenty years of research, investing, consulting, and coaching, Johnson has seen that people need continuous learning and fresh challenges to stay engaged. In this book you'll learn how to build an "A" team by leading team members on their current learning curve, how to design their jobs to maximize learning and engagement, and how to implement a seven-step process for advancing up the learning curve. We all want opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow in our jobs. The best bosses know this, and they know how to make it happen through thoughtful role design and just enough challenge. The result is a team that learns how to thrive, no matter what the industry throws at them.--

Full Description

What's the secret to having an engaged and productive team? It's having a plan for developing all employees--no matter where they are on their personal learning curves.

Better morale and higher performance happen through learning, argues Whitney Johnson. In over twenty years of coaching, investing, and consulting, Johnson has seen that employees need continuous learning and fresh challenges to stay motivated.

The best bosses know this, and they know how to make it happen by thoughtfully designing people's jobs around the skills they have today as well as the skills they'll need to be even more valuable tomorrow. That's how entire organizations stay competitive in an unpredictable, rapidly changing business environment.

In this book, Johnson explains how to become one of those bosses and how to build your A-team by:

  • Identifying what your employees already know and what they need to learn
  • Designing their jobs to maximize engagement and learning
  • Applying a seven-step process for leading each person up their learning curve

We all want opportunities to learn, experiment, and grow in our jobs. When our bosses work with us to help us leap to new challenges, the result is a team that knows how to thrive, no matter what the future holds.
