Using the same characters as those found in Miller’s other bestseller, The Secret and one new character, a retired Special Forces Commander, this work aims to help team leaders and team members create high-performing teams. The core message is that Talent, Skills, and Community are all essential to team success, and that team leaders and leaders supervising or training team leaders, need to develop all three in order to create such teams.

The story was told through the eyes of a corporate training team tasked with a goal to develop high performance teams. I think the book would suit corporate trainers who are aware that they need to improve. I'm not a corporate trainer therefore the book did not appeal to me.

This audiobook is about developing winners - providing salespeople with the secrets sports professionals have used over the years to help them win in highly competitive environments. For example, most top golf pros are all virtually equal skill-wise - you couldn’t pass a sliver of paper between their ability, yet only one of them can win each week. Only one can triumph. So what is it that separates them - if not their skills? The answer to this question is as simple as it is profound; it’s all about how they think!
