The Beauty of Diversity (A quokka's adventures): An Adorable Children’s Book about Diversity and Teamwork that will Teach your Kids the Importance of Believing in Yourself and What Makes You Unique! by Sienna Poe
You Are the Team is a book that will easily and dramatically improve the way your team works together by literally changing the heart and mind of every member of your team. It's a book for you, your team and entire organization. Many leaders struggle with getting members of their team to help and assist each other; to be direct, candid and respectful in their communication; to actively participate in meetings-providing ideas and passionately discussing important topics; to trust each other; to stop engaging in negative talk and even gossip; and to take accountability for their job and performance... to name just a few. You Are the Team combats the "Teammate Me Culture," which is when members of the team care more about their own needs than the team's needs. It inspires teammates to: *Serve each other *Put others and the team first *Tell the truth and be transparent *Keep commitments *Be direct and honest in discussions *Take accountability *Learn from mistakes *Seek honest feedback from teammates *Improve personal gratitude *Refrain from negativity and gossip *Compliment teammates more frequently *Celebrate teammates successes *Extend more kindness *Seek to understand teammates first before reacting *Demonstrate greater empathy towards teammates *Get it done and then some *Improve personal focus on goals *Bring solutions, not problems *Invest in personal development *Inspire and lead Would you agree that the above actions improve teamwork? Could your team improve by teammates implementing even just a couple of these concepts? You Are the Team is both engaging and practical. Author Michael Rogers uses a variety of entertaining stories to highlight the concepts in the book. Introspective questions are at the end of each section to help teammates reflect on how they are currently applying each of the important team concepts. The end of the book includes an assessment with 27 questions to gauge the overall effectiveness of teammates. Becoming a successful team begins with teammates who want to provide more value than they receive. You Are the Team was written to help members of teams understand the value they bring. Order a copy for you, for your team, for your entire organization. Michael has over 20 years of experience working with teams in business, sports, and a variety of volunteer organizations. One common theme in his consulting work has been that the best teams are made up of teammates who are committed to and invested in their team and its outcomes. He has found, without exception, that teams consisting of teammates who regularly practice his 6 B's of selflessness, trustworthiness, humbleness, positivity, respectfulness, and greatness achieve extraordinary teamwork. When Michael sat down to write You Are the Team, he wanted to write a book that could be easily understood by anyone reading it, a book that was inspiring-even life changing, a book that was engaging and a book that could be quickly applied by every member of the team. Many are finding that he did just that. Are you a leader who wishes you could get your team to work together better? Are you a leader who needs to boost results? Are you a leader who wishes your team cared more about their work and the outcomes of the team? You Are the Team is that one book that will change your team and organization long term.
A Most Beautiful Thing: The True Story of America's First All-Black High School Rowing Team by Arshay Cooper
Publisher: Flatiron Books
The moving true story of a group of young men growing up on Chicago's West side who form the first all-black high school rowing team in the nation, and in doing so not only transform a sport, but their lives. Growing up on Chicago’s Westside in the 90’s, Arshay Cooper knows the harder side of life. The street corners are full of gangs, the hallways of his apartment complex are haunted by junkies he calls “zombies” with strung out arms, clutching at him as he passes by. His mother is a recovering addict, and his three siblings all sleep in a one room apartment, a small infantry against the war zone on the street below. Arshay keeps to himself, preferring to write poetry about the girl he has a crush on, and spends his school days in the home-ec kitchen dreaming of becoming a chef. And then one day as he’s walking out of school he notices a boats in the school lunchroom, and a poster that reads “Join the Crew Team”. Having no idea what the sport of crew is, Arshay decides to take a chance. This decision to join is one that will forever change his life, and those of his fellow teammates. As Arshay and his teammates begin to come together to learn how to row--many never having been in water before--the sport takes them from the mean streets of Chicago, to the hallowed halls of the Ivy League. But Arshay and his teammates face adversity at every turn, from racist competitors, gang violence, and sport that has never seen anyone like them before. A Most Beautiful Thing is the inspiring true story about the most unlikely band of brothers that form a family, and forever change a sport and their lives for the better.
