Teamwork - a matter of balance and insight

Roberts, Alan G. (2002) Teamwork - a matter of balance and insight. Perspectives on Educational Leadership, 12(6).


Why are some teams better than others — and in particular why do some teams never appear to be successful, no matter how good their membership or how strong their collective will to succeed? While teamwork and team approaches are often enthusiastically promoted and embraced by principals in schools, we need only a limited experience with teams to appreciate that "collaborative situations are also full of contradictions, competition, and conflicts" (Lipponen 2002, p. 76).

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
