CAIRO BOOKS's Description
High Five! combines the spellbinding charm of a timeless parable with
cutting-edge information about why teams are important and what individuals and
organizations can do to build successful ones.
Through the story of Alan Foster, a workplace one-man band, High Five!
identifies the four key ingredients of winning teams. Although Alan is an
effective producer, he is unwilling to share the spotlight by partnering on
projects and is fired because, as his boss puts it, "Alan, we need good
producers who are good team players, too." It is a bitter pill for him to
While mulling over his disappointment, he takes his son to his grade-five
hockey practice, where it is clear that his son's team, the Riverbend Warriors,
knows nothing about teamwork, either. When the team's two overworked coaches
learn of Alan's plight, they persuade him to join their ranks, and he finds
himself charged with teaching himself and the players the meaning of teamwork.
With the help of a woman friend-a former girls' basketball coach who has "won
more high school basketball championships than anyone"-Alan and the Warriors
learn the magic of teamwork and that "none of us is as smart as all of us."
With its simple style and easy-to-follow techniques, High Five! is a must-read
for anyone seeking to learn the value and power of teamwork.
