In 1995, Shannon Waller started coaching the team members of the successful entrepreneurs in The Strategic Coach® Program. As she was coaching, she discovered the need for a thinking tool that would help them better understand the person they were working for (usually the owner), and from there, be able to develop strategies to help them be successful and take advantage of all the unique opportunities that exist in an entrepreneurial company.

The result was 12 success strategies that are essential to being an effective, valued team member in an entrepreneurial organization.

Go deeper into the 12 strategies and beyond, as Shannon shares the fruits of her passionate pursuit to improve teamwork for entrepreneurial team members and their entrepreneurs and multiply their results, value creation, and sense of fulfillment at work.

Reviews for The Team Success Handbook

“While I’d like to think I’ve mastered many of the strategies in this book, I could never have articulated them so well and so concisely. It’s a true guide for success, and it’s going to be a must-read for our internal team. I’m ordering a number of copies, so our folks will have a better appreciation of working with an entrepreneur.”

“I read many books each year, and few touch me as this one did. I wish I would have had this book 15 years ago when I was offered ownership at our firm. It took me years to figure out what was so clearly written in your book. I have so many flags marking pages in the book I plan to use with my team. The book is right on target. Thank you for writing it!”

“I had the chance to read your book cover to cover. It is a great read and well organized. I wish I’d had this book when I first started working with my entrepreneur, as many of the lessons I had to learn through trial and error over many months. This book would have cut the learning in half! I would recommend you suggest to all of your clients to include this book in their new hire packets—it is an incredibly valuable tool.”

Many of us were amazed that someone had written a book about our company! We use your insights and then discuss specific issues we have had or have. It makes a great platform for having some excellent discussions.”

I love the action items at the end of the chapters, and I appreciate the insights into what has worked in your own company. As a long-time Strategic Coach client, I love having this tool with all the strategies artfully laid out and easy to follow. We will definitely be using this book with our own team. Thanks for sharing your passion with all of us.”

“Wow, Shannon, you knocked this one out of the park. Reading this book, I felt as though you wrote it about me. How did you manage to capture and so eloquently articulate many of my thoughts and perspectives that have been racing through my mind about my team? Your book provides the recipe for success. I can’t wait to share this with everyone I know on my team as well as other entrepreneurs.”
