“No one understands the importance of culture and teamwork more than the folks at Chick-fil-A. Mark Miller shares some of their secrets in this remarkable business fable.”

Teams are critical to the success of every organization and what separates the teams that really deliver from the ones that simply spin their wheels can now be found in "The Secret of Teams: What Great Teams Know and Do" by bestselling author, Mark Miller.
Creating high-performance teams does more than just give an organization a competitive advantage. It can be a performance multiplier that significantly improves results while honoring and developing people, notes Miller.
This groundbreaking team book:
- Reveals the three keys to creating high-performance teams that consistently achieve great results
- Gives practical advice for overcoming common challenges encountered when striving to optimize each of these three keys
- Outlines how to dramatically transform a team’s performance and achieve sustained exceptional results
Robert Morris, Top 50 Amazon Reviewer said this of the book,"One of this book's several value-added benefits is Miller's inclusion of material concerning high-impact leadership and teamwork in the U.S. Army Special Forces, NASCAR, and a local restaurant. The fictional "pilgrims" learn a great deal from each of these exemplars and therein is revealed the "secret" to which the book's title refers."
As he did in "The Secret:What Great Leaders Know and Do", Mark Miller uses a compelling business fable to reveal profound yet easily grasped truths that can dramatically transform any organization. In fact, he even uses the same characters!
In "The Secret of Teams", Debbie Brewster, the heroine of "The Secret:What Great Leaders Know and Do", has been promoted and is now struggling with taking her team to the next level. She turns to her old mentor, Jeff Brown, the company’s CEO. Rather than tell her what to do, Jeff sends her out to visit some high-performance teams and find out what makes them tick.
As the book reveals, Debbie and her team discover the three elements that all successful teams have in common. But that’s just the start. The devil is in the details, as the story of Debbie’s efforts to actually implement the three elements shows.
Readers will learn how to change entrenched ways of thinking and acting, what leaders have to do to optimize each of the three elements of a successful team, how to measure team progress, and more in this book.
“Whether you're part of a huge corporation, a not-far-profit organization, or a small company with just a few employees, apply the principles and practices in "The Secret of Teams" to make your workplace come alive.” Ken Blanchard, author of the bestselling classic "The One Minute Manager"
Creating high-performance teams does more than just give an organization a competitive advantage.
