What is different about teams that are consistent winners, those teams that always seem to bring their A-game when the stakes are highest? A positive team culture is likely the answer.
We’ve all seen it happen: the team that looks great on paper, or has a league-leading regular season, but can’t pull out the wins or give their top performance when everything is on the line. As coaches and sport leaders what can we do to ensure that we maximize the potential of our athletes and teams so they are successful and continue to enjoy sport? How do we ensure that we coach in a way that benefits the team and remains respectful of the individual?
In their first book together, André Lachance and Jean François Ménard offer tangible and practical strategies to help sport leaders create efficient group dynamics, build team culture, and help a group of athletes to gel. Using the periodic table of elements to organize concepts into a modular framework, the authors have created a powerful new resource for coaches in every sport.
Building successful teams is not as simple as picking the best players: there are specific methods that coaches and leaders use to make their messages stick and to bring out the best in everyone within a group. Consistently, the healthiest team cultures have a huge impact on performance. That is the power of Team Chemistry.

“Team Chemistry” is a great book for anyone working or volunteering in sports, no matter the proficiency level! The audiobook is split into 36 sections and, besides being fairly easy to listen to, it also covers a wide variety of topics which are useful to know for any coach: how to address the team members during a crisis, how to keep morale up when the odds seem against your team, and most importantly, it focuses on a set of rules and best practices that coaches should adopt if they are to succeed in their activity.
Special thanks to NetGalley, ECW Press Audio, and the editorial team for giving me the opportunity to review the ARC in audiobook format and to you, my reader, for taking the time to read this honest personal book review.
