The one characteristic all phenomenally successful people share is mental toughness. Mentally tough people are better at making decisions more quickly and with better results. They possess the uncanny ability to control what goes on between their ears. Instead of allowing their minds to focus on their problems when adversity strikes, the most successful people have learned to direct their thoughts in a systematic manner that produces positive emotions and productive actions: they have a Relentless Solution Focus.
In Relentless Solution Focus, top performance coach Dr. Jason Selk, along with his colleague Dr. Ellen Reed, provides the insight, tools, and proven step-by-step framework for you to do the same. When you master this practice, confidence and momentum grow, taking you and your team to higher levels of performance and achievement.

The Mental Toughness Needed to Lead Highly Successful Teams
Watch a triumphant speech after a sports championship or business milestone and you’ll almost always hear some variation of this catchphrase: “It couldn’t have happened without the great team we have.” It doesn’t matter if you’re the owner of a 10,000-employee Fortune 500 company or running a small business, you’re a part of a team. With a combined 50 years of experience building, managing, advising, and troubleshooting teams in both the business and sports worlds, Jason Selk and Tom Bartow now reveal the common DNA that links the highest performing teams.
In Lead Any Team to Win, Selk and Bartow show how it takes collective mental toughness to win, developed only through a clear understanding of the goals, limitations, roles and personalities on your team. Great leaders respect and embrace channel capacity, Selk and Bartow explain, which means they don’t overload their teams with blizzards of tasks and responsibilities. They bust the “focus” and “relationship” fallacies, as those words are meaningless for teams unless they are byproducts of activities that really matter. And Selk and Bartow teach how to manage expectations, since doing so creates a level of respect between the leader and the team–and among the team members–that is a catalyst for peak achievement.
