In today's uncertain economic environment, teams are constantly asked to do more with less. Yet with resources stretched thin, turning around a struggling team has never been harder. Managers must work to identify and maximize whatever potential strengths a team already has. As sports fans already know, behind every great underdog story is a leader who roots out the competitive advantage that propels the team to victory.

In Team Turnarounds, Joe Frontiera and Dan Leidl share how this fine art of the turnaround really works, from how to inspire the team to the actual tools for change. Through interviews with team managers and turnaround masters in the NFL, MLB, and the NCAA, as well as managers at top global firms who have successfully reversed their fortunes, they show the six steps every team takes to make a 180 in performance:

  • Leading Past Losing
  • Committing to Growth
  • Changing Behaviors
  • Embracing Adversity
  • Achieving Success
  • Nurturing a Culture of Excellence

From the legendary worst-to-first story of Bill Polian and the Indianapolis Colts to Jeffrey Lurie's efforts to transform the Philadelphia Eagles, Team Turnarounds features first-hand accounts of how the best team managers brought about their teams' comebacks. In the business realm, Team Turnarounds offers candid, behind-the-scenes stories of successful turnaround executives and the obstacles they faced at major organizations like Domino's Pizza, Juniper Networks, iContact, and even the Broadway musical Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.

And since every team's turnaround is unique, the book features the tools needed to start an organizational 180—from leaders' action plans to thought-provoking group exercises—to help leaders and their teams create their own turnaround stories.

No matter how bad the circumstances, how awful the performance, or how far shares have plummeted, Team Turnarounds shows how any organization can make the climb back up to the top.
