In One Mission, former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell draws on his extensive experience of high-pressure team work to show how organizations can apply lessons from the field to successfully transform their way of doing business – becoming flatter, quicker, and much more collaborative across departments and divisions.

Whilst sharing his own military experience, Fussell explores examples of transition in companies ranging from industry titans like Intuit and Under Armour to small businesses, which have all adopted the ‘Team of Teams’ model in order to unite everyone around single compelling mission. The result is a ‘shared consciousness’ that drives consistently better results with less friction and inter-group rivalry.

One Mission is a practical handbook for any leader looking to evolve their workforce into a highly mobile and effective unit and inspire their teams to look beyond their narrow field of vision to understand – and effectively contribute to – the organization’s one true mission.

The steps of transition include:

  • Achieving strategic alignment: communicating organizational priorities down the chain of command.
  • Determining operating rhythm: organizing regular company catch up and feedback sessions.
  • Setting up communication and decision-making processes: developing a hybrid decision-making structure to empower and inspire every person on the team.
  • Shifting leadership behaviour: ensuring successful transition with radical humility by starting with the leader and continuing down the chain of command.
