Build Extraordinary Teams and Shatter Expectations

Jason Caldwell (Author)

Publication date: 10/22/2019

Navigating the Impossible
World-record endurance athlete and professional leadership coach Jason Caldwell draws on his amazing experiences to show how anyone can build and lead teams that accomplish incredible things.

Thirty-five days, 14 hours, and 3 minutes. That's how long it took Jason Caldwell and the crew of the
American Spirit to row 3,000 miles across the Atlantic Ocean during the 2016 Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge—or, as it's known to those who attempt it, “The World's Toughest Row.” They not only succeeded but set a world record.

This was an extraordinary
team effort. And that's what this book is about. Caldwell transfers the hard-won lessons of his transatlantic adventure out of the ocean and into your office, showing how to build and lead teams that do what others say cannot be done and sustain that level of performance.

The thrilling details of Caldwell's quest to break the world's record deliver a “just-one-more-page” experience, during which you'll also learn lessons like 
 
• How to quit like a winner
• Why results aren't the measure of a high-performance team
• What four questions you should ask yourself before you set any goal
• How to harness the power of emotion-first leadership
• Why the best people aren't necessarily the right people for your team

This book is a distillation of Caldwell's worldwide speaking programs delivered to packed crowds at Fortune 500 companies and universities worldwide. It is the answer to a question he is constantly asked: How were you and your teams able to accomplish such seemingly impossible goals? And it's also a guidebook that can teach anyone how to do the same.
