Publisher's Summary

From the coauthor of New York Times best seller Team of Teams, a practical guide for leaders looking to make their organizations flatter and more interconnected.

When retired four-star general Stanley McChrystal and former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell cowrote Team of Teams, they drew on their experience transforming the US military's Special Forces into a flexible and nimble force that could defeat Al-Qaeda's decentralized network in Iraq. They proved that the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of small teams could be scaled up to large organizations while breaking down the silos that frequently cause problems.

Since Team of Teams became a best seller in 2015, business leaders have repeatedly asked Fussell the same questions: How can I transform my own organization into a team of teams? Is that kind of dramatic change even possible outside of the urgency of a combat zone? If so, what are the practical steps to get there?

One Mission answers those questions and many more. Drawing on his consulting work with the McChrystal Group, Fussell shows how civilian organizations have transformed their way of doing business - becoming flatter, quicker, and much more collaborative across departments and divisions. Along with sharing his own experiences from the battlefield, he explores examples from industry titans like Intuit and Under Armour, which have adopted a similar model in order to unite everyone around single compelling mission. The result is a "shared consciousness" that drives consistently better results with less friction and intergroup rivalry.

This book is for any leader who wishes he or she could get everyone to look beyond their narrow field of vision to understand - and contribute to - the organization's one true mission.

    "Great book!"

    The book was well-narrated by Chris Fussell! I learned a wealth of ideas from this book. I intend to apply them.

    "Disappointed"

    While the narrative around the military is useful, that's pretty much all this book offers. Very narrow business examples which is what I expected this to have more of.

    Story
    "Top Notch Leadership and Change Management in One!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of One Mission to be better than the print version?

    Books read by the author are particularly compelling, in my experience. This was no exception. As I listened, I couldn't help but feel that Chris's intonation and emphasis expanded the material (instead of wondering if the reader is miss-interpreting the material, as I sometime wonder when it is read by a paid voice.)


    What other book might you compare One Mission to and why?

    The Advantage by Patrick Lencioni, because both provide tools to improve organizational health- the most important aspect of organizational development currently being explored by leadership experts.


    What about Chris Fussell and General Stanley McChrystal ’s performance did you like?

    Clear, straight forward, and personable in presentation, I felt like I was engaging with each of them as I listened. Really enjoyable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The material is tight, and taking time to digest it between listens and after particularly insightful sections was helpful.

    "Outstanding!"

    This follow-up to Team of Teams is its equal and provides a lot of fine grained details of how the concepts can be translated and implemented. Ranks alongside Extreme Ownership for its practicality.
