Unstoppable Teams are characterized by their ability to bring diverse individual gifts to bear upon the team’s goals through a shared sense of purpose and a deep commitment to each other.
You can assemble as many individual superstars as you’d like, but they won’t become unstoppable unless they believe in each other and in their collective mission.
When a small group of people band together to do something extraordinary, the rest of us scratch our heads in wonder.
Unstoppable Teams, however, aren’t reserved for elite forces in the military, or even legendary accomplishments in sports or business. In every facet of life, developing the qualities of an unstoppable team is within your reach.
I’ve spent the last thirty years daring, failing, and eventually succeeding at building just these sorts of teams, and they all used the same framework, the same actions and the same “all-in” commitment.
Why I Wrote Unstoppable Teams
If you’re willing to commit to caring for and serving others, then you can become a truly unstoppable force for making greatness happen. In my last post, “Why I Wrote Unstoppable Teams,” I wrote that caring is the cornerstone for building trust and persistence in any group.
Imagine for a moment that you are surrounded by people who will not let you fail. When you see an obstacle, they see an opportunity. When you’re scared, they turn to support you. When you’re tired, they work tirelessly. When you’re uncertain, they reassure you.
In my new book, “Unstoppable Teams: The Four Essential Actions of High-Performance Leadership,” I discuss the foundational component of every great team: you and the “team” inside of you. Before you can begin to inspire and influence others, you must know yourself and figure out what matters to you.
Once you learn the drivers of your action platform, the only team you can control, then I’ll introduce you to the seven traits of unstoppable teammates. I will take a deep dive into the four-part CARE framework, which lies at the heart of every unstoppable team’s success.
The actions detailed in this book are the same ones practiced by Navy SEALs and successful entrepreneurs; they are used by nonprofit leaders, CEOs, coaches, and sports captains. These actions tap into the power of our human spirit and inspire us to go well beyond our perceived limits.
Do More Than You Originally Thought Possible
In BUD/S training, candidates are paired, each person responsible for helping the other get through the training. That’s your swim buddy. And that’s what I’m going to be for you: your swim buddy.
I will be with you each step of the way, encouraging you and challenging you to push past old beliefs in favor of new behaviors that will enable you and your team to do more than you originally thought possible. Hooyah! (That’s SEAL-speak for Fired Up!)
