This brief, readable book is designed to introduce a new team-building model called Team Resource Management (TRM) and serves as a guide for experiential learning events based on the Tavistock tradition. Using examples from popular culture and industry case studies, this Primer deepens understanding of group behavior by exploring the application of concepts such as leadership, management, authority, role, task, boundaries and teamwork in high-risk teams. Although all organizations have complex dynamics that influence performance, high-risk teams have unique characteristics. Yet, little research has been conducted about how high-risk groups manage teams under stress. This book fills this gap, exploring how professionals in high-risk fields can increase awareness of the dynamics of authority relations, the act of authorizing, and the interdependent nature of leadership, while learning how to manage anxiety in stressful situations.
