Apples and Oranges on Your Team: Bite-Size Stories for Life-Giving Leadership is a work of non-fiction in the occupational and leadership subgenres. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Steven Sullivan. The work is a discussion on how to assemble teams who are diverse, well suited for their work, and encouraged to perform to their highest potential. By using various stories and anecdotes from different avenues of life, the author intends to demonstrate how your leadership choices can impact your environment, all without the pretense of step-by-step solutions which assume one size fits all when it comes to team building.
Apples and Oranges on Your Team was a fascinating approach to guidebooks on leadership which is a market that constantly sits on the precipice of over-saturation. In a market in which people try to sell quick fixes and ready-made solutions to nuanced and diverse problems, it’s so wonderfully refreshing to read a book that acknowledges that it cannot do all of the work for you. Instead, author Steven Sullivan tells a series of stories about leadership in different contexts so that the reader can take what lessons they need from as many or as few of these stories as they require. Instead of a guide that holds your hand without listening to your context, Sullivan has created a tool for reflection that readers in leadership positions will find invaluable. Apples and Oranges on Your Team is a well-considered, excellently constructed, and thought-provoking lesson on leadership that acknowledges the uniqueness of its readers and still finds a way to provide help and guidance to all.
