    This book is written in a parable style and outlines the three important components of every great team. I highly recommend this book for any leader who wants to be more effective in creating a high performing team, as it provides great direction and specific, helpful, action-oriented advice in a format that is easy to read and fun. Read this title along with the others from Mark Miller, The Secret and Great Leaders Grow.

    Appreciated the information, but was distracted by the attempt to put the information in the form of a story. If it was a description of what really took place it seemed forced. If it was fictional it was not well done.But the information about forming teams is very good information. It seems a little simplistic but it rings true. I would have preferred it be a little longer with some real-life examples and experiences from the author. At the length is was it was a very quick read. It's not the [...]

    Simple framework on the power of teams built on a narrative. Interesting presentation. Great content.

    Meh! I didn’t feel I learned much in this beyond the obvious. I normally enjoy the teaching from story style but it just felt forced here. A four-page note could have given the same information.

    Really good book, it teaches you how to work as a team, understand your co-workers and situations they maybe going through and be a good leader by edifying problems and qualities on team members.

    The Secret of TeamsThe secret to Mark Miller's book, "The Secret of Teams, " is what great teams, and of course, leaders do. How do you make the transition from knowing to doing? "The Secret of Teams" is here to help answer some of your questions. How do you take your group from doing ho-hum, "good enough for government" work to a unit willing to pursue the best in themselves and in each other?Talent, skill and community, Miller tells us is what makes great teams great.The focus first must be on [...]

    Mark Miller takes a page from Aristotle's book and opens his story by noting that if we want to know what makes a team exceptional, we should begin by studying exceptional teams. He then proceeds to do so with a series of case studies from a variety of fields, showing how the same fundamental principles apply in each of them even if the terminology varies somewhat.[return][return]And the principles he identifies are indeed fundamental. First is selecting the right people to make up the team, who [...]

    The plot and writing were a bit stilted especially at the beginning. But, I learned a lot from this book and I'm glad I read it.

    5 Star Book! I consider Mark Miller to be a personal mentor. I can feel Ken Blanchard's integrity and love for leaders really come through is the short easy read book.I love the format of telling a story while teaching. I really grasp and can find myself comparing and looking to apply the great teaching in The Secret.Thanks so much for writing this book. My favorite thing are some of the great questions the book challenges the main character with. What is the purpose of your team?• Where do yo [...]

    Good reminders: Effective leaders bring and energetic mix of urgency and optimism. The secret of teams, according to the authors, is threefold: 1) talent, 2) training and 3) teamwork.Talent means selecting the right people. As Collins would say, "do what you have to do in order to get the right people on the bus and in the right seats."Training means investing in those talented few so that they grow more effective and efficient, i.e. productive, over time. Team building means focusing on the com [...]

    One of the best books on successful team principles based on a fictional story. Mark Miller does an excellent job of teaching the reader what makes successful teams through interviews of successful leaders in different industries. As the reader, you are engaged throughout the story and can follow along principle through principle. You take away simple, effective and applicable principles of a high performance team. A must read if you're a team leader or simply a team member looking to improve yo [...]

    This book was assigned to me by my new manager/mentor. Our team is new, and she thought that this book would help kick off success. I think she was right. The book was written very differently than any 'management' book I have previously read. There was dialog, which made it feel more like a novel. That being said the message of "Talent, Skills, and Community" resonated well with not only me, but my new peers. Excellent read for managers that really want to encourage a team environment. Great bo [...]

    Not a huge fan of parable books, but as far as they go, this is pretty good. It serves as a solid introduction to team dynamics and success indicators. There are good team lessons and reminders to be had from it. Worth the investment & time to read, whether you're new to team thought, or as a good refresher to the practitioner.

    Oddly written, but wonderfully helpful book on the essence of building powerful and creative business teams. It's written as a story, which I appreciate because I tend to find most business help books to be overly boring tomes. It's strange to read a book written that way, but I quickly became grateful for the help. The books also contains terrific, thoughtful help in this process.

    The Secret of Teams is an easy read, and marginally entertaining (as a fable), but not especially helpful. It's not that it is wrong isn't. But it is written at such an abstract and labeled level that it really doesn't serve to help someone interested in leading a team to higher performance. For those wanting an introduction to creating high performance teams, there are better books.

    Good leadership book with those wanting to take their teams to the next level. Nothing groundbreaking but all-in-all an excellent reminder of what makes a great team tick. As a fable, I was able to read it in one sitting. It wasn't as engaging as a Lencioni book but I'd recommend it to anyone for a quick read.

    TEAM- it means so much to any organization, but there is more to it than just creating a team. Moving the team forward is the object of the game. In this book you will grasp what it means to be a part of a unit or team. Great book by a man who had seen first hand what a great team can do for a company and a community.

    Far too wordy and not helpful. I cringed at the corniness of the stories with every turn of the page. This material is blatantly obvious to anyone who has been in business for even a short period of time.

    The management principles in this book are good and are presented in a way that is easy to understand and to implement. I have a business background, but I currently direct a ministry, and what I learned can be applied in any organization to improve results.

    Talent + Skills + Community = Results. This book is a decent read if you're on an airplane because it's not very in-depth and it's short enough to finish before you land.

    Exceptional read to find a working model to build a high performing team. I enjoyed the stories. It was easy to understand the concepts through the stories.

    It was ok. For a business how-to book, it was actually not bad. Written as more of a story, I did get interested in the characters.

    Great, simple, egaging read about building great teams. You might also consider reading the Wisdom of Teams (Katzenbach) for more depth.

    This is one of those "thought leadership" books that is based on some anecdotal evidence rather than on real research. It makes some good points but isn't terribly compelling.

    Easy read that might serve as a good introduction to teamwork. However, seems overly simplistic and doesn't really break out of the box of being just another fable,
