A business parable about how companies can achieve remarkable results by helping their employees fulfill their dreams Managing people is difficult. With disengagement and turnover on the rise, many managers are scratching their heads wondering what to do. It's not that we dont dream of being great managers, it's just that we havent found a practical and efficient way to do it. Until now . . .

The fictional company in this remarkable book is grappling with real problems of high turnover and low morale -- so the managers begin to investigate what really drives the employees. What they discover is that the key to motivation isnt necessarily the promise of a bigger paycheck or title, but rather the fulfillment of crucial personal dreams. They also learned that people at every level need to be offered specific kinds of help and encouragement -- or our dreams will forever remain just dreams as we grow dissatisfied with our lives and jobs.

Beginning with his important thought that a company can only become the-best-version-of-itself to the extent that its employees are becoming better-versions-of-themselves, Matthew Kelly explores the connection between the dreams we are chasing personally and the way we all engage at work. Tackling head-on the growing problem of employee disengagement, Kelly explores the dynamic collaboration that is unleashed when people work together to achieve company objectives and personal dreams.

The power of The Dream Manager is that simply becoming aware of the concept will change the way you manage and relate to people instantly and forever. What's your dream?
• Benefit from Belbin’s own experience of putting the Team Roles method into practice

• Succinct and practical information to enable managers to make a real difference in the workplace

• Real-life case studies show how to apply the theory in practice


Meredith Belbin’s unique and widely-read work on teams has become part of everyday language for organizations around the world. For every manager, getting the most from their team is paramount in achieving superior results. Belbin’s vital area of management research supersedes the usual preoccupations with qualifications and experience, considering instead the Team Role behaviours which shape everyday interactions in teams.

Management Teams: Why they succeed or fail is an account of the experimental study of management teams at Henley Management College from which Belbin’s unique Team Role theory developed. Now in its third edition the original theory has been fully updated and rewritten in parts by the author, with chapter summaries and updated illustrations. This is the original book by Meredith Belbin, offering the only authoritative explanation of how Belbin’s world-famous Team Role language came into being.
