Top Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
Ted Sundquist's excellent book, Taking Your Team To The Top, should be a leadership primer for all new leaders and required reading for current leaders. I've been in management for over thirty years and I learned a lot. His real world experience makes this book both timely and very relevant in today's fast paced work environment. With his previous experience as the General Manager of the NFL's Denver Broncos, he writes passionately about scouting for talent, drafting superstars, managing, and creating successful teams.

His insights are invaluable. I love his quote: "When excellence is no longer goal but an established standard, success will become its exact reflection" (p. 208). This is not a book that discusses failures and how to avoid it. Ted Sundquist looks at it from a different angle. This quote captures the essence of his team building philosophy: "As a leader, part of your job is to handle success throughout your company to prevent complacency and negative issues. First you reach success, than you manage it. Just like adversity, success should be expected and planned for ahead of time" (p. 217).

This book is definitely a "must read." So...whatcha waiting for?

I preordered the book and received it a few weeks ago and couldn't wait to read it, due to Ted's diverse military and NFL background. Ted didn't disappoint, because the book is a perfect representation of him: upbeat, yet very pragmatic about what leaders should do in order to succeed and leverage the strengths of their team members. The book is full of stories that illustrate his points, and I especially enjoyed the chapter on Finding the Right Fit, because you can find smart people, but if they're not the right for your organization, it is a waste of time and talent. I have known Ted for a few years, and know he practices what he preaches.

Taking Your Team to the Top isn't just a book about football. This book has a much broader scope. Ted Sundquist uses lessons he's learned from his time in the Air Force and as an NFL General Manager and shares them in a manner that can be applied in the business world just as easily as the football world. This book is about how to assemble a talented team of people and lead them to success. I did a great deal of highlighting in this book, especially in Chapter 3 which is about developing the talent of your team members. I highly recommend Taking Your Team to the Top to any person who is responsible for assembling or managing a team of people.

Taking Your Team to the Top is a great read for anyone running a business, thinking about opening a business, or anyone who wants to learn the ins and outs of teamwork, ethics, and the way to build a great team. This book was so detailed in every aspect of what it takes to build a successful team and how to sustain that success. Every single chapter in the book had a purpose and was backed up with real-life examples of the subject of that chapter. A great read for anyone working in a teamwork atmosphere or any type of business-related field. TWO THUMBS UP!

I am someone who loves to read anything and everything that is written by a current or former sports administrator. This book was one that could not be put down from page one until the last page was turned. It is an essential read for any and all who want to have a future in the field of sports administration.
