Other topics include professional growth, developmental skills techniques, emphatic team communication, motivation and inspiring team members, the operating environment, logic models and problem solving for teams, and the application of the principles of assessment. In addition, the questions/discussion at the end of each chapter provides a concise and up-to-date integration of the chapter content and brings together a practical and operational approach that is clearly useful and informative. Law enforcement professionals, policymakers, investigators and the general public will find the book to be a significant resource in the development of teams, groups, and task forces.
