More About the Author

Robyn Benincasa
UPDATES for the Fall 2012 -
going for my THIRD Guinness Record in Paddling in September.

SEPTEMBER: Finished First in Women 's Division for ELLIPTIGO Championships on Palomar Mountain - met Olympian Mary Decker Slaney while racing for Project Athena with Teammate Ann Hall who came in 5th!

JULY: Finished First Woman and Second in Race for the Missouri 360 - paddled for 3 days - as the picture of my hands tell the story


Athlete, firefighter, competitor, mentor, winner--and now bestselling author. These attributes all describe Robyn Benincasa. She continually sets new goals for herself and in the last week of September 2012, she will attempt to break a third Guinness World Record in the ocean for "Longest Distance Paddled in a Canoe/Kayak in 24 hours by a Female". She currently holds the "Flat Water" (lake) and "Moving Water" (river) Guinness 24 hour records and this new endeavor will complete the paddling category.

In 2002, Robyn launched World Class Teams, an adventure-based team-building company that brings the lesson of teamwork from adventure racing to both the corporate and personal worlds of her audience. Robyn is also the founder of Project Athena, a nonprofit organization that helps women who are survivors of medical setbacks live an adventurous dream as part of their recovery. She lives in Cardiff, California. Her new book, "How Winning Works", is published by Harlequin.

I'm a small business owner and have found this book to be an invaluable tool in learning to be a better leader. In the book, Robyn Benincasa shows how to create a "we thinking" mentality that I have applied in my office. We're now looking at things as a team, instead of as a group of individuals. My employees are seeing problems as challenges instead of roadblocks and learning to work together more effectively.

I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to improve their relationships with co-workers, employees, clients, friends or family. A great read from cover to cover and a real page-turner.

This book is very easy to read, the language is straightforward and entertaining. Most business or self-help books tend to get dry and boring, but a lot of the chapters in this book read more like a novel. The stories are of firefighting and adventure racing, so Robyn's background is more exciting than someone who made boardroom changes to improve a company.

Not to say that the lessons in the book don't apply to business or any other team. The application of her 8 Essential Leadership Lessons are made very tangible by her stories - making them easy to understand then apply to your business or team.

I smiled, laughed, and fought back tears during different times reading the book. It is truly inspiring.

Format: Hardcover
This valuable guide will become a favorite among all business owners. The lessons introduced will help every step of the way for challenges met within the office, or on a personal level. Robyn Benincasa provides important information on good leadership, essential tools for decision-making on skills, and how to provide effective relationships among coworkers and clients. The author uses her expertise on leadership through her experience, with an impressive reputation. I highly recommend 'How Winning Works' to all business owners, which is a must-have, and to those who seek skills on leadership for non-business reasons. Easy to read, informative, and extremely useful for small business owners. A great tool to the growth of professional and personal success, which will be an excellent reference in my personal library.

This book is well written, clear and has directly usable information, I love this book because it is filled with the best first hand examples of what it really takes to be at my best. Robyn is an outstanding public speaker and I have been deeply moved at her presentations and this book delivers the same high standard. This is a must read book in my opinion.

I loved this book. I usually keep books in pristine condition so I can pass them along or donate them but I found myself using a highlighter throughout the book.

Not only was it entertaining to get a peek into the world of extreme adventure racing, there were tons of worthwhile insights. I think my biggest takeaway was playing to others strengths and accepting help where you have a weakness.

Truly a powerful read and worth reading cover to cover...with a highlighter in your hand.

If there is any book that can teach you there is no "i" in team, it is this one. Besides, it is delightfully written and grabs your interest quickly with wonderful adventure stories for each leadership lesson. I've passed this book around to several of my colleagues. Better than Good to Great.
