Managers want great teams, but most build them around decades-old ideas and practices made popular by companies that have lost their edge. Extreme Teams looks at the new generation of teams driving growth in today's most innovative firms. They do this by doing things differently: hiring the right person instead of the best person; focusing on one priority while leaving room to explore new ideas; creating an environment where people are comfortable dealing with the uncomfortable; and maximizing profit by not making profit what matters most. The book takes you inside top companies and examines the teamwork experiments powering their results, including how:

  • Pixar's teams use constant feedback and debate to transform initially flawed films into billion-dollar hits
  • A culture of radical "freedom and responsibility" helps Netflix execute on the next big thing
  • Whole Foods' super-autonomous teams embrace hard metrics and friendly competition to drive performance
  • Zappos fuels the weirdness and fun that sustains its success

Times change, and so must teams. Designing and managing high-performance teams requires upgrading outdated beliefs and behaviors, and spurring a level of intensity and collaboration that lets them face down any challenge.

Extreme Blah

I was hoping that, from the title of this audiobook, I was going to gain some material insight as to how top performing companies build, manage and motivate high performing teams.

That's now what I got.

I got a bunch of standard managment consulting speak about building unique culture and people tactics from these companies that I've read in prior articles in Forbes, Fast Company or Bloomberg. Nothing new.

Now don't get me wrong, I wasn't expecting to receive something that would be earth-shattering, but I was hoping for a nugget or two.

Nada. Nothing, Zilch.

And just to be sure. I listed to this one twice.

Authors Read Your Own Books

I loved the outside the box ideas presented in this book. Also, getting some insight on companies I use on a daily basis was very interesting. The only minus I had was the narration. It was very dry and lifeless, which I often find to be the case when it is read by someone other than the author.
