Ryan and Bellman shine a bright light on groups engaged in the intriguing and mysterious process of creating exceptional results. They identify the four core ingredients and then make the related behaviors more visible, discussable, and actionable. Many have had an exceptional work experience and would like to repeat it. What they are missing is knowing how to make this happen.Books about teams usually play on the surface dynamics of teams, seldom diving beneath into the mysterious attraction that groups hold for people. They are about the outer layer of team work, rather than the individual's inner core that informs the heart and shapes action. The authors' deeper dive into this territory differentiates their work from other books. They explore elements of our core selves as human beings that cause us to look for heartfelt and purposeful engagement with others, so that collectively we can make some type of difference in the real world. Readers will be able to use the model in two ways: planfully--preparing for and design group meetings/experiences, and spontaneously--shaping group experience in the moment through their actions.
