Advance praise for Extreme Teams:

“There is a new generation of firms experimenting with bold new ways of using teams, and in Extreme Teams Robert Shaw shows how they do it. Through his masterful storytelling and engaging analysis, Shaw offers revealing insights and practical lessons for team leaders who want their own groups to perform at much higher levels. Extreme Teams is a powerhouse book and a fascinating inside look at what it takes to be innovative in how we design and manage teams in the age of disruption. The stories alone are worth the price of the book; the payoff you’ll get from putting the lessons to work makes Extreme Teams invaluable.” — Jim Kouzes, coauthor of the bestselling business classic, The Leadership Challenge, and the Dean’s Executive Fellow of Leadership, Leavey School of Business, Santa Clara University

“Putting together a great team may seem like catching lightning in a bottle, but the truth is that you can build one. You just need the right guide, and that’s Shaw’s Extreme Teams. Packed with real-world examples, Extreme Teams equips you with the priorities and knowledge you need to build outstanding teams that can disrupt your business in all the right ways! Outstanding!”— Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author or editor of 35 books, including What Got You Here Won’t Get You There and Triggers

“The best companies rely on teams to deliver the results they need. But too many leaders underestimate the creativity and persistence needed to design and manage teams effectively. Extreme Teams describes how innovative companies are pushing the boundaries in regard to teams. A fascinating study of innovation that vividly illustrates the future of teamwork. Highly recommended for leaders who want to create a culture that fosters superior team performance in their own organizations.” — Linda P. Hudson, Chairman and CEO of The Cardea Group; former President and CEO of BAE Systems Inc. and Chief Operating Officer, BAE Systems plc

“Cutting-edge organizations are constantly experimenting with creative approaches to team building. Extreme Teams shares their success practices, and we learn how to fully ignite the performance and results of our own teams.” — Frances Hesselbein, Office of the President and CEO, The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute; Editor-in-Chief of the award-winning quarterly, Leader to Leader
