"Team Turnarounds: A Playbook for Transforming Underperforming Teams" is written by Joe Frontiera and Daniel Leidl, and published by Jossey-Bass. Frontiera and Leidl co-manage Meno Consulting, a firm that focuses on culture turnaround, team development and leadership development.

In Team Turnarounds, the authors, through interviews with team managers and turnaround masters, show the six steps they say teams must take in order to go from worst to first:

- Leading past losing: Take a good hard look at where you are and tell the truth about it.

- Committing to growth: After you accept reality, you have to see past it and commit to a new future.

- Changing behaviors: This stage transforms planning and talking into actually doing and taking actions.

- Embracing adversity: Domino’s Pizza is featured as an example of a company facing their obstacles head on.

- Achieving success: Once your team starts winning, the next step is to focus on what's next. Winning isn't the end, it's the beginning.

- Nurturing a culture of excellence: This features an interview with Dan Rooney from the Steelers and what it takes to maintain a dynasty.

There's also a workbook to create your own turnaround.
