The South African Special Forces achieved exceptional results with
small groups of elite soldiers instead of larger, conventional
teams. The Team Secret shows that the same principle applies in
the business world – a small team has a much better chance of
completing projects efficiently, on budget and on time.
Teams, rather than individuals, form the DNA of many companies
and they play a pivotal role in achieving strategic and financial
success. Like Special Forces teams, they must function as a well-
oiled machine firing on all cylinders.
Koos Stadler tells in captivating detail about a real-life Special
Forces operation and the lessons learnt about team dynamics and
achieving the goal. His story, combined with anecdotes from
Anton Burger’s experiences as a team leader in different work
environments, show the many lessons the business world can take
from the Special Forces.
The book identifies the key characteristics of an effective team,
how to select the right team members, how to inculcate an ethos
centred around team principles and how an effective team should
be led. It speaks to both team members and team leaders across
all managerial levels – from a team leader in a call centre to a
project manager or CEO.
In short: To fast-track your business, shape up your teams!
