“…winning requires an entirely different mind-set than not losing.”  Winning is more about character than finish time, and Robyn talks about teams that win through her stories of ultra-races and her firefighting career. Two quote worthy statements from the book: the best teams share their strengths and weaknesses, and inspiration comes from showing your teammates how amazing they are, not how amazing you are. The climate of your firm is responsible for at least 1/3 of your profitability, what is yours like? If you take only one thing away from this book – let it be the art of the debrief. How often does a project wrap up without any conversation about successes and opportunities? Debrief doesn’t mean defend your decisions, and that’s a pivotal shift.
