In The Secret of Teams, Mark Miller examines what makes high-performance teams so effective. This engaging business parable follows the continuing story of Debbie Brewster (the heroine from Miller’s previous book, The Secret.) In The Secret of Teams, Debbie is struggling to take her team’s performance to the next level, and decides that she wants to get out into the field and observe how the best teams around the country operate. Her findings show that all successful teams share three main ingredients: talent, skills, and community. However, while Debbie is excited to learn about creating teams that function at a higher level, she faces challenges and resistance from within her own organization when she starts to implement those changes among her own team.
