Team Turnarounds

"Pick up a copy of Team Turnarounds to discover the six stages that almost all underperforming teams go through. From state governments to sports teams to corporations, all teams have experienced defeat or, at the very least, lackluster performance. In Team Turnarounds, Frontiera and Leidl detail memorable transformation stories and give readers a personal guide for revamping their own teams." —Marshall Goldsmith, author, New York Times bestsellers MOJO and What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"As a member of the New England Patriots and an alumnus of Tufts University's lacrosse program, I've been in the trenches with organizations fighting to get ahead and striving for the winner's circle. Team Turnarounds advances a developmental process that not only captures how to be a winner, but also uses everyday stories to guide people with big goals forward and motivate any leader to strive to be greater." —Dan Kraft, New England Patriots

"Team Turnarounds provides a compelling look at how great teams stick together and persevere through the toughest times and emerge victorious, whether it's in sports or the competitive world of business."

Dave Brandon, director of athletics, The University of Michigan; chairman of the board, Domino's Pizza, Inc.

"Team Turnarounds is a great tool for all managers who find themselves faced with intractable problems. The advice and insight provided in the book is tremendously helpful and inspiring for executives with underperforming components. Read it and win!" —Oliver Luck, athletic director, West Virginia University; former president and CEO, NFL Europe

"Recovering quickly from adversity is what separates the best from everyone else. Team Turnarounds has the formula and the tools to execute a team's recovery. Read this book, and then do the outstanding worksheets at the back, to own your own team's turnaround." —Molly Fletcher, sports agent and author, The Business of Being the Best
