Acclaim for Destination Unstoppable

“As a member one of the most successful teams in NFL history, my experience as a professional athlete and entrepreneur has taught me that building a winning team requires more than recruiting talented people. You can’t stop there – history is littered with gifted individuals and teams that failed to reach their full potential. You must invest in a player’s strengths to bring out their best on the field and off. You must invest in the strengths of the collective to build a championship team.  This book will teach you to discover the untapped talent on your team, and harness it to reach your Destination Unstoppable.” –  Ryan Diem, Super Bowl XLI Champion, Indianapolis Colts ’01-’11,  Director/Investor, CloudOne

“If you are looking to gain an edge on your competition, read Destination Unstoppable.  The book shows you how to maximize individual and team performance by identifying and leveraging team member’s strengths.  In my experience, this is how professional sports teams and businesses become champions.”   – Christopher Ilitch, President & CEO, Ilitch Holdings, Inc.

“A season on the brink, a scuffling team not realizing their potential. More Practice? Work Harder? How about a radical approach of optimizing performance by unleashing the inherent strengths of each personality on the team. This insightful and provocative book tells how a high school hockey team went from mediocre to champions by changing the culture through a strengths based approach. ‘Unstoppable’ shares  individual accounts of team leaders who were a part of the transformation of a hockey season, and the transformation of self-awareness that will last a lifetime. You will undoubtedly be inspired to find ways to do the same with your team to produce equally dramatic results.”   – Shawn Patterson, VP of Organizational Effectiveness, DTE Energy

This is more than a sports success story – it is a team success story. The world runs on teams yet only a few reach their full potential. This is a story of how to build a winning team by mining and aligning human treasure so that your group discovers Destination Unstoppable. This book is for any coach or leader who seeks to achieve a competitive advantage by harnessing the full capabilities of every person in the locker room or the conference room.

How many times have we been told, “Fix your weaknesses and you’ll be a rock star!” No. Hone your strengths and you’ll be a rock star. Peak performance lies in fully understanding what you do best, making your weaknesses irrelevant. This fascinating approach is explored in the true story of an unlikely partnership between business consultant Maureen Electa Monte and veteran coach Andrew Weidenbach to help the talented but struggling Cranbrook boy’s high school varsity hockey team. When Monte’s strengths-based success program was deployed, magic happened. Untapped talent was discovered and utilized on and off the ice. No teammate was left behind. Momentum grew with compounded interest. Six weeks later they were state champions.
