If you are passionate about making a difference in the world through your group’s mission and vision, this book is the perfect guide for achieving spectacular results.  As you work through the Group Alchemy Formula, clearly presented in six concise chapters, you will learn specific practices that enhance your group’s ability in each of the six elements: Inspiration, Agreements, Accountability, Acknowledgement, Renewal and Mastery.

Based in a new leadership paradigm that challenges the traditional “command and control” approach and gets directly to the heart of how a culture of collaboration is created from each individual in the group and not from the top down.  It challenges a tradition of management that often creates barriers to the full expression of talent and creativity and leaves members of the group alienated, distrusted and disrespected. This is not a book about how to better manage people and get them to do what you want.  It is instead a book about allowing the wisdom of the group to create a sustainable culture of working together towards a common goal.

Group Alchemy: The Six Elements of Highly Successful Collaboration is your practical guide to:

*Inspiring people to stay focused on results and give their best to your mission.

*Quickly establishing the foundation for high-level collaboration with any colleague or partner.

*Eliminating common hidden barriers to group communication and success.

*Preventing the typical breakdowns and frustrations that limit the group’s possibility.

*Expanding the impact that you have on any group whether you are the formal leader or not.
