Synopsis: When You're Asked to Do the Impossible is a powerful guide for high-intensity, high-stakes teams in business, healthcare, government, education, and other areas of life. The first book to translate the operating principles of the U.S. Army's elite Rangers into guidelines for teams in civilian life, this book establishes that to do the "impossible" individuals and teams must be developed to the highest professional levels, must be well led, must be exceptionally well prepared and supported -- and must be able to succeed in the face of everything gone wrong.
The proven principles and lesons here stand against the bureacratic inertia, power plays, mediocracy, slovenly ethics, and defense of the status quo that hobbles modern efforts in most fields. They challenge leaders and team members at all levels to develop new ways of thinking, communicating, and interacting in order to achieve the "big wins" that are out of reach of most organizations. When You're Asked to Do the Impossible paints a no-nonsense picture picture of just how good teams can be, as it presents the principles and characteristics of some of the highest performing teams in the world.a

From the Back Cover: When You're Asked to do the Impossible sets out the principles and methods of the U.S. Army's elite Rangers for use by civilian teams and organizations that, too, must operate under extremely difficult and demanding circumstances as they respond to crucial challenges. Such high-stakes teams are all around us. In addition to emergency management teams, medical trauma units, SWAT and hostage rescue teams, firefighters, and NASA astronaut crews, for example, there are numerous but less visible teams within business, education, and government that are tasked with difficult, if not impossible, missions. Incorporating interviews with active duty Rangers and those who hold leadership positions in business and public service, this volume also makes extensive use of illuminating case studies from Johnson & Johnson, Pepsi Cola, Royal Dutch/Shell, Disney, the FBI, Ford, NASA, Chrysler, McNeil, Ben & Jerry's and Nordstrom to demonstrate how innovative, focused civilian teams have led the way.
When You're Asked to do the Impossible provides a unique perspective for blending the skills and talents of individuals, organizations and leaders in order to create high performance teams that take on the greatest challenges... with clear and realistic expectations of attaining or surpassing their goals. For anyone who is asked to do the "impossible," Anthony Le Storti presents a readily accessible, sharply defined guide to activating and deploying for success.
