YA GOTTA WANNA: WINNING TAKES TEAMWORK MALCOLM PAICE, Creative Book Publishers, There have been many books written on team management and an equal number of management gurus offering team management advice. These books and gurus usually give information about improving team leadership, becoming more effective as a team member, developing positive team relationships, and creating a supportive team environment. Author Malcolm Paice gives fresh perspectives on these topics in the book "Ya Gotta Wanna." Malcolm Paice analyzes the effort that is spent on team building in an organization. Paice has been training manager in America and Europe for many years and has imparted training to different levels of employees in organizations. According to Paice, any projects that require teamwork have three phases: identifying the people and creating the team, analyzing the components of the team, and implementing the project. The author compares a soccer team with a management team. Paice claims that a successful soccer team will have three main areas attributes: a solid defense, a creative midfield, and a potent strike force. Depending on the conditions, a team mixes and matches the players within these components to get desired results. The same is applicable to organizations in which the manager has to identify skill-sets of different people to place them in the right jobs. The author uses the Meyer's-Briggs psychometric approach to postulate the theory that it is essential to choose the right person for the right job. The author also draws a parallel between the goalkeeper of a soccer team and the manager of an organization. "This is because the manager is the final defender of the company values, targets, and results." This book will come in handy to anyone, from experienced leaders to rookie managers or parents to social groups. Dr. Joel Robertson, the best-selling author of books such as "Natural Prozac" and "Peak Performance Living" has written the foreword of this book. In simple terms and without management jargon, "Ya Gotta Wanna" explains a unique approach to team management.
