Unstoppable Teams

The Four Essential Actions of High-Performance Leadership
by Alden Mills | 240 pages

Alden Mills is a three-time Navy SEAL platoon commander and the Founder/CEO of Perfect Fitness (which was one of Inc.’s fastest-growing companies in the country). He’s also the father of four boys, a great writer/storyteller and, most importantly, an inspiring human being. I loved Alden’s first book Be Unstoppable. This book (and the AMAZING Unstoppable Teams 101 class Alden created with us for our Optimizers!!) is packed with wisdom gleaned from Alden’s 25+ years of experience working with high-performing teams. It’s fantastic. Big Ideas we explore include a quick look at the CARE loop, the Whiner vs. the Whisperer (+ Samurai swords), The A in CARE, achieving over-the-horizon goals, and jumping headfirst into leading your unstoppable teams!


“Unstoppable teams come in all shapes and sizes, but they all depend on understanding human emotions, motivations, and values. It is both complex and as simple as this: you must care. Caring is the cornerstone for building trust and persistence in any group. When people feel cared for and when they care about the tasks and goals at hand, they’re willing to step beyond their perceived limits and dare to do something greater than they originally thought possible.
I’ve spent the last thirty years daring, failing, and eventually succeeding at building just these sorts of teams–as a member of championship high school and college rowing cruise, as a Navy SEAL, as the founder of a successful startup, as a community organizer, and, yes, even as a father and a husband. Though each one of these efforts has had different objectives, they all use the same framework, same actions, and the same level of “all-in” commitment. If you’re willing to commit to caring for and serving others, then you can become a truly unstoppable force for making greatness happen.”

I loved Alden’s first book Be Unstoppable. I read it years ago then read it again recently with our six-year-old Emerson. He loved it as much as I did and proceeded to quiz his mom on the eight actions to becoming unstoppable! :) (Check out Emerson making a cameo in a couple +1s on that book: UPERSIST (on the eight actions) and this one on our new family mantra: NEGU!!)
So, I was thrilled when I got an advance copy of Alden’s new book, Unstoppable Teams.
This book (and the AMAZING Unstoppable Teams 101 class Alden created with us for our Optimizers!!) is packed with wisdom gleaned from Alden’s 25+ years of experience working with high-performing teams. It’s fantastic. (Get a copy of the book here.)
I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas so let’s jump straight in!
