Overview

The stars and superstars of professional and amateur sports dazzle us with their instincts, their reactions, their sure knowledge of the game. But any fan will tell you that individual talent alone can't guarantee a championship. The winning edge is something more. Don Martin, a self-made millionaire calls it "TeamThink" - developing a team that has commitment, pride, leadership, and motivation. By applying the 65 powerful TeamThink concepts to the workplace, you will be able to: build a top-notch team, pick winners and spot losers, set goals that let your team know the score, hire talented people who have the right "fit" with the rest of the group, fire up your company to get the kind of wins a fired-up sports team gets, make sure that everyone is playing the position that maximizes his or her strengths, make service more than just a philosophy or department. The first book to use sports-management technology as a business tool, TeamThink is filled with colorful stories and comments from sports and business leaders that are as insightful as they are quotable.

The first book to use colorful sports anecdotes as business tools, TeamThink illustrates the importance of skills that athletes take for granted--training, leadership, coordination, and motivation--and provides valuable wisdom on how to make business objectives as clear as any goal line.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
American businesspeople have traditionally peppered speeches and conversation with sports metaphors. Here, Martin, CEO of Cal-Surance, a California insurance firm, urges business leaders to look beyond the jargon and adopt the techniques that make the difference between winning and losing in athletic competition. He advises executives to state their mission clearly; to develop ``a positive corporate culture''; to lead rather than to manage; to use great care when selecting players for their team--keeping the best ones and eliminating those who don't fit in; to motivate the team well; and, above all, to cultivate a winning attitude. Although much of Martin's program is not original, couched in sports terms, it could score a touchdown. Fortune Book Club selection. (June)
