rofessional success comes through team effort.Finding success in organizations and life is not a solo effort. It's created through working together, working in sync with colleagues, clients, and valued friends or family members. Through this reciprocity, small ideas grow into big plans, local efforts have a global impact, and productive managers become great leaders. When you have the tools to generate the combined effort of your team in a unified direction, you develop the power of leading without a title and getting greater results through coordinated efforts.Working in Sync tells the stories of eleven highly successful professionals who learned the principles of connection and teamwork on the Dartmouth class of '86 crew under coach Whit Mitchell. After a twenty-five year team reunion, Whit wanted to find out the secret to their professional success. He conducted months of one-on-one interviews, uncovering outstanding insights on excellence in life and business.These interview produced staggering results. Whit discovered that each of his former rowers had found professional success at a high level. They had each taken very different routes along the way, but they had all been able the reach the height of professional excellence in their various fields. Each rower also credited his success to the basic skills and principles gleaned from his time on Whit's crew. Whit immediately saw the connection to be made with his own executive coaching clients to find their own measure of professional success.Now, using the same lessons that propelled these rowers, Whit created Working in Sync to share them with you.
