Who's In The Room? How Great Leaders Structure and Manage the Teams Around Them

Who's In The Room? How Great Leaders Structure and Manage the Teams Around Them by author Bob Frisch.  The author suggests that it is a myth that Senior Management Teams make a company's critical decisions.  The reality is that critical decisions are typically made by the boss and a small group of confidants " a team with no name"- outside of formal processes.  Meanwhile, other members of the management team wonder why they weren't in the room or even consulted ahead of time.  The dysfunction that results from this gap between myth and reality has led to years of unproductive team building exercises.  The problems, Frisch shows, are one of process and structure, not psychology.
 
Key Points:
  • understand and embrace the way decision making actually happens in organizations
  • use these "teams with no names" to best advantage
  • Engage the Senior Management Team in the three critical tasks for which it is ideally suited
