Publisher's Summary

A three-time Navy SEAL platoon commander and founder of Perfect Fitness reveals how to put together teams that can accomplish any objective - by leveraging an unexpected set of values and priorities. 

SEALs and civilians operate in extremely different environments, but what makes both kinds of teams excel comes down to the same thing: service to others, trust, empathy, and a caring environment. Alden Mills has experience working in both the military and the private sector, as a SEAL platoon commander and as a start-up founder of Perfect Fitness. He’s seen firsthand what it takes to lead an unstoppable team of individuals. 

Teams are nothing more than a series of interconnected relationships with a collective, single-minded focus. Success almost never depends on individual talent and valor; instead, Alden Mills shows, it depends, first, on creating a strong foundation for yourself and, second, using that foundation to help others go beyond their individual pursuits and talents to create something bigger and better - an unstoppable team. 

Unstoppable Teams show managers at every level, at both large and small organizations, including private, public, and nonprofit, how to inspire, motivate, and lead the people around them. Mills draws on stories from his own experiences to impart these surprising team-building lessons:

  • Too many people mistake groups of individuals for a team.
  • No two people are alike, but we all have the same genetic drivers that motivate us - our will to survive, our ego-driven desire for personal gain, and our soul-driven yearning to be a part of something greater than ourselves.
  • When we override our fears about survival, we can focus on our desire to thrive.
  • The more you care for your teammates, the more they will dare for the team.
  • Great ideas are not reserved for a select few - true teams embrace diversity of thought to find winning ideas.

These lessons aren’t exclusive to the Navy SEALs; they are used by successful entrepreneurs, nonprofit leaders, coaches, and sport captains - and now, you can master them, too. Unstoppable Teams is the handbook for how to build care-based teams that will push people to achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Insight from a real team leader.

It’s so refreshing to get team leadership insight from someone who’s actually walked the talk in situations most would fear to go.

A Gem

I hadn't heard of this book, but it showed up as a recommendation on my Daily Deal...Wow, am I ever glad I decided to pick it up! Best book on team building I've read in a while. Concise, but comprehensive with great stories to illustrate his points.

Interesting but not enthralling.

Good refresher on many fronts with different examples. I found the narrator voice robotic and with little emotion, which made listening more difficult.

All in all a decent book but not an unstoppable one!

Authentic and Inspiring

I felt like Alden Mills was next to me telling a story. His unique experience, insights and leadership skills gives inspiration to many of us who didn’t go to business school but have a desire to build great companies.

Pure Team Building Gold

I read a lot of management books and this is the most practical I’ve read on how to build strong teams. Mills clearly has tremendous depth of experience and success—this has become my road map for our organization. It’s a fascinating book. I’m grateful for his service and the time he took to share his experiences.

More theory based sequel

This book contains more systems and techniques to build care in your team!

Most certainly useful for anyone about to assemble a group of people to achieve a certain goal!

I would have liked more fictional stories and a continuation to Tim’s story, but I am a very visual learner and there are still stories and even a fictional one in the end :)
