As a consultant and coach, one of the most important aspects of any book that I read is to understand how to apply the principles presented. In 'Working Together', Anita Mountain and Chris Davidson explain the theory of organizational TA and give numerous suggestions for application plus exercises and examples. The authors have a very accessible style for a topic which in some other texts appears too clinical or complex. In addition, this is possibly the finest work of its kind in the business field.
Each chapter is well presented, helping the reader to grasp the principles of the topic and explaining how this works in `the real world'. Significantly, the reader clearly understands why it is important; for self-development, for developing others and significantly for working with others.
The sub-title of 'Working Together' is 'Organizational Transactional Analysis and Business Performance'. It is clear to me that the authors truly understand what impacts business performance and present their knowledge and findings in such a way that the reader could look at a problem situation at work (or home), read the relevant chapter, and say "ah ha, so that is what is what is going on and this is what I need to do the resolve/improve the situation".
I recommend this book to anyone who works with people; consultants, managers, leaders, coaches, trainers. If you want to understand and improve how you interact with others; if you want to improve performance, then there is something in this book for you. For those familiar with TA and want an organizational text, "look no further".
