Very few things great are done alone. Epic achievement is almost always the result of successful and enduring collaboration. Jim explains and details the elements of winning teamwork. He provides specific examples from the experience of the U.S. “Miracle on Ice” hockey team, and how it confounded the experts, made history and made it to the top of the podium.

Jim has studied and continues to study and research what inspires the pursuit of excellence in those who achieve greatness. He describes what is it that separates those content with good enough, and with all right, and with the okay and those who have an unquenchable thirst and drive to make history and establish the highest standards.

One of the nine “Gold Medal Strategies” that Jim teaches that he writes and speaks about is that great teams manage through ego and conflict. Jim tells the story of early on in their journey to Lake Placid and history, the players on the 1980 U.S. Olympic team were not working cooperatively; the team was beset by regional and personal rivalries. But the players got beyond the conflict—and they forged a team, and executed teamwork, for the ages.

Had the members of the 1980 U.S. Olympic hockey team—under the guidance and direction of Herb Brooks—not thrown off the old ways and play of U.S. international hockey, had they not embraced a revolutionary form of the game, they would not have beat the team that couldn't be beaten, and won the game that couldn't be won. There would not have been any gold medal or any stop atop the podium. Jim talks about how he and his teammates executed that transformation and change—and how the example of that transformation and change can aid your organization to perform more effectively.
