Self-Managing Teams: Debunking The Leadership Paradox

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Is leadership superfluous in a self-managing team? Aren't self-managing teams supposed to be self-sustaining and self-sufficient? Paul Tesluk, Associate Professor of Management and Organization at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland, wants to correct this misconception. "Self-managing teams are not as rare a phenomenon as what they used to be. By definition, a self-managing team is a team that has formal responsibility and authority for making their own decisions about how they organize their work and how they decide on how they're going to get their work done."
