How to Build the Perfect Team

I just read a fascinating article in the New York Times Magazine, something I’d recommend to all leaders and managers. “What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team” was written by Charles Duhigg, Pulitzer-prize winning journalist and bestselling author.

Honestly, this is the sort of book that I would pass by in airports and avoid like the plague. However, I read Duhigg’s The Power of Habit and was most impressed by his journalistic talent.”What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team” drew me in. So, yes, I have pre-ordered Duhigg’s new book. My guess is it will be surprisingly rewarding if not rewardingly surprising.

I recommend reading “What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team,” even though it is long-form non-fiction and takes more than a couple of minutes. To entice you, I thought I’d offer some excerpts in a couple of Insights for Leaders blog posts.
