Book Description

Winner of the Small Business Book Awards from Small Business Trends 2013

The Sydney Hobart Yacht Race is among the most demanding sailing competitions in the world. Unpredictable seas make the 628-nautical-mile course grueling under the best conditions, but the 1998 race proved to be the most perilous to date when a sudden and violent storm struck. Winds gusted over 100 mph and monstrous 80-foot waves towered over boat masts. Six sailors perished and another 55 were saved in what became the largest search and rescue operation in Australia's history.

In the face of turmoil and tragedy, a crew of "amateur" sailors piloted their tiny vessel, the AFR Midnight Rambler, not only to the finish but to overall victory. While bigger, better-equipped yachts attempted to maneuver around the storm, Ed Psaltis and his crew made the daring decision to head directly into its path. Their triumph--perhaps even their survival--owes itself to an extraordinary level of teamwork: an alchemy of cooperation, trust, planning, and execution.

Into the Storm chronicles their nearly four-day ordeal and draws parallels to the world of business, revealing 10 critical strategies for teamwork at the edge. Illustrated with examples from the story and compelling case studies, the book sheds light on what teams need to do to succeed in tough times. Finally, Into the Storm provides resources and tools to support teams as they navigate the chaotic seas of business today.

Dennis Perkins is Chief Executive Officer of The Syncretics Group, a firm devoted to effective leadership and teamwork in demanding environments. Dennis has studied leaders, teams, and organizations facing conditions of extreme challenge – a place he calls The Edge – the outer limits of human endurance. Based on his research, Dennis has identified critical strategies that enable leaders and teams to reach their greatest potential in any challenging environment.

Dennis’ passion to understand The Edge has taken him to disparate places – to Antarctica, where he retraced the footsteps of famed explorer, Ernest Shackleton; and to Australia, where he sailed with the crew of the Midnight Rambler, winners of the challenging 1998 Sydney to Hobart Race. He subsequently completed the 626 nautical-mile race, often called the Everest of offshore racing, as a crew member on a Volvo 60 racing boat.

Dr. Perkins has worked for over thirty years as a trusted advisor to senior leaders and teams in organizations ranging from Fortune 100 corporations to nonprofit associations. He is a highly, sought-after keynote speaker and an accomplished author. His riveting keynote presentations feature dramatic stories recounted in his best-selling books, Leading at The Edge and Into the Storm.

A graduate of the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Dennis served as a Marine infantry officer in Vietnam. He subsequently received his MBA from Harvard University, and a PhD in psychology at The University of Michigan. Before he founded The Syncretics Group, Dennis was a faculty member at the Yale University School of Management.

Dr. Perkins has written extensively on leadership, teamwork and organizational effectiveness. He is the author of Leading at the Edge: Leadership Lessons from the Extraordinary Saga of Shackleton’s Antarctic Expedition; Into the Storm: Lessons in Teamwork from the Treacherous Sydney to Hobart Ocean Race. Managing Change: The Challenge of Building a New Organization; Racing through the Storm: Building Exceptional Teams in Extraordinary Times; and Using the Power of Resonant Metaphor to Increase Leadership Effectiveness.
