The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork Workbook
Embrace Them and Empower Your Team

By John C. Maxwell

The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork Workbook The amazing Dr. Maxwell (featured in our March cover story) is at it again. He's taken the principles of his best-selling book, The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership, and applied them to teams and team-building. He stresses the vital "importance of vision and values, the dangers of egotism, bad apples and malingerers, and the necessity of dedication to collective will." The book punctuates its points with stories from history and current events (the Exxon Valdez and famed sherpa Tenzing Norgay are two examples), writing exercises, self-evaluating check-lists and "Take Action" assignments.

The 17 Indisputable Laws of Teamwork is one of Dr. John Maxwell's best-selling books. In this companion workbook, Maxwell provides tools every person building any team can use.

Win as a Team While You Dare to Dream!

By Dr. Tom Barrett

Win as a Team While You Dare to Dream! More often than not, perfectly aligned and harmonious networking couples share a common beginning: their entrance into their business began as a solo effort. So exactly how did these couples arrange their sometimes-divergent feelings about this brand new network marketing opportunity into harmonious accord?

In this informative booklet, Dr. Tom Barrett lends his considerable experience with counseling couples (and members of Congress) to this all-too-common need of aligning spouses' overarching goals and expanding workloads within the limits imposed by the 24-hour day.

His efforts result in a wide range of easy-to-implement approaches, practical suggestions and effective strategies for launching a successful home-based business as a couple. Not surprisingly, he hones in on communication skills, especially listening, empathy and careful observation. By utilizing the power of "both" (vs. "either/or") while establishing necessary balance and boundaries, Dr. Barrett's insights show us how to support our entrepreneurial partners.

An added bonus: a truly concise and marvelous distillation from both partners' points of view and a fabulous rendering of the entrepreneurial mindset.
