Publisher's summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of The Mentor Leader and Quiet Strength comes an audiobook sure to transform your team or organization!  

For most people, succeeding in life requires mastering the art of teamwork. Whether at work, school, church, or home, virtually everyone is part of a team - and when they work well, teams can accomplish more than individuals working by themselves.  

But not all teams are created equal. When a team isn’t functioning well, individual strengths can be undermined and weaknesses accentuated, making the work environment a terrible place to be. So what does a truly effective team environment look like, and how can you create one within your own organization?  

As a former Super Bowl-winning coach, Tony Dungy is an expert at building and bringing out the best in a team. Drawing on his experiences from years of coaching and working with other leaders, this football fable lays out four essential principles practiced by truly effective teams. Telling the story of a fictional NFL team looking for a turnaround, The Soul of a Team not only identifies some of the most common issues that hold a team back, but also lays out a game plan for winning teamwork. 

Whether you aspire to be a better leader or a stronger team player, The Soul of a Team will show you how to contribute to a stronger, healthier, more productive team destined for success.

Great listen about qualities you look for in a team and leadership. Although it’s a football based story, you can apply the principals throughout life.

Easy to Use

This books a great diagram on creating an award winning team. I will be honest, I did get lost I. The fictional component, but it was needed to illustrate his points.
Once the lessons were learned and they were discussed further I was really able to grasp the content.
Great book and I will take the lessons learned to further my ability to create teamwork in all facets of my life.

Inspirational

This is a well-delivered performance on how to build a team. Although framed in a sports world, this is exactly the mental stimulation a person needs to pull together individuals for a greater purpose. I am excited and energized to use this format with my non-profit organization!

Tony Dungy's Tells All

It's hard to find a better coach or human than Tony Dungy. His success on the gridiron matched with his insight as a football commentator placed him in an exclusive category of human. But what really sets him apart is his respect for others and his ability to bring an air of dignity to professional football. What I always wonder was how did he infect his teams with a hard knocks winning attitude and be so mild mannered? This book uses a fable to tell how he did it. This is necessary for anyone who wants to have a winning team in sports, business, or life. It is worth listening to more than once.

Not your average story!

I didn't expect the book to be the type of flow it has. I almost stopped it after the first couple of chapters, but I am glad I stuck through it. Tony provides some great tips and insights in management of individuals and at an organizational level from an angle not often seen in the traditional corporate world. A strong recommended read.

Thought provoking and motivating

Good for any group of people who must work together. The story is not only entertaining but gives a glimpse into what goes on behind the scenes to make a successful football team.
