In her latest book, Beyond the Talent: Profile of a Winning Team, Barb Smith takes her 30 years of experience playing on and leading Division I college teams and boosts that with a countrywide, year-long research project where she interviewed and examined a variety of sports and business teams to understand what makes them successful. Barb shares this acquired knowledge about how certain characteristics of teams are intertwined to create the magic of winning teams.

Championship teams, with little exception, have six key components in common. When teams lack these characteristics, success is more difficult to obtain. The essentials go beyond just sports. They are applicable to teams and organizations of all kinds, including business teams.

Smith reveals six key elements that must first work with and through one another before realizing a championship team. In Beyond the Talent: Profile of a Winning Team, the six key elements include; The Leader, the Workhorse, the Voice, the Connector, the Teacher, and the Diffuser. Barb shares how to identify, seek, develop, and cultivate these six key elements to build high functioning and productive teams.
