Andy Fieldhouse, founder of UAE-based company The Team Space www.theteamspace.com, has published a book to help teams titled ‘Getting Teamwork Right’. The book’s purpose is to help people create a committed, confident and happy team, that is then able to achieve the success it desires.

Today’s teams are working in an increasingly complex, agile and interconnected world with unprecedented challenges that need to be overcome. Andy believes that the answer to surviving and thriving in this environment is to consciously work on the specific but often under-appreciated skill of teamwork.  

The book has a dual purpose. Firstly, to create awareness of important aspects of teamwork – for example, deciding on a compelling purpose that all team members are aligned behind and connected to, creating an open and honest team culture, and learning how to communicate effectively and avoid toxic conflict. Secondly, the book is a ‘how to’ guide, giving practical steps and tips for teams who want to create their own winning formula.

Andy says “I have spent my career working out what good teamwork looks like. I have worked with hundreds of teams and seen how destructive and painful poor teamwork can be, but also how amazing the experience can be when you get teamwork right. There’s a magic that can happen when teams make the effort to become a high functioning team. They create high morale, infectious confidence, a supportive and collaborative spirit and the result is success”. 

Andy continues “Sadly, most teams leave their culture and behaviour up to chance and fall into the many traps and pitfalls that poor teamwork creates. They are held back by a lack of trust, poor communication, indecision, low morale and a stressful, negative team culture. I wrote this book to help these teams get themselves out of trouble and find out what they need to do to make their life better. People should not settle for these toxic environments, instead, by reading this book they can learn how to become and happy, successful and resilient team that gets things done”.
