Publisher's Summary

From the coauthor of New York Times best seller Team of Teams, a practical guide for leaders looking to make their organizations flatter and more interconnected.
When retired four-star general Stanley McChrystal and former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell cowrote Team of Teams, they drew on their experience transforming the US military's Special Forces into a flexible and nimble force that could defeat Al-Qaeda's decentralized network in Iraq. They proved that the agility, adaptability, and cohesion of small teams could be scaled up to large organizations while breaking down the silos that frequently cause problems.
Since Team of Teams became a best seller in 2015, business leaders have repeatedly asked Fussell the same questions: How can I transform my own organization into a team of teams? Is that kind of dramatic change even possible outside of the urgency of a combat zone? If so, what are the practical steps to get there?
One Mission answers those questions and many more. Drawing on his consulting work with the McChrystal Group, Fussell shows how civilian organizations have transformed their way of doing business - becoming flatter, quicker, and much more collaborative across departments and divisions. Along with sharing his own experiences from the battlefield, he explores examples from industry titans like Intuit and Under Armour, which have adopted a similar model in order to unite everyone around single compelling mission. The result is a "shared consciousness" that drives consistently better results with less friction and intergroup rivalry.
This book is for any leader who wishes he or she could get everyone to look beyond their narrow field of vision to understand - and contribute to - the organization's one true mission.

Just Can't Get Through This Book

What disappointed you about One Mission?

Listening to this book is like sitting through a calculus lecture. It seems to just be suspended above the drain but cannot be flushed. In the end, it offers no real practical advice in accomplishing it's stated goal of building a team of teams.

Has One Mission turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I recognize this is just an author trying to capitalize on the success of other SEAL officers to make a buck

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Not much.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I guess it could have been longer so I guess a redeeming quality was that it wasn't.

Change the lines!

This was a great book as I began my role as a Strategic Director. This is a useful outline on effective ways to reach out of silos and create a great move toward a unified narrative.
