When Michael sat down to write You Are the Team, he wanted to write a book that would literally change each member of the team and make every leader's job easier. He wanted to write a book that could be easily understood by anyone reading it, a book that was inspiring—even life changing, a book that was engaging and a book that could be quickly applied by every member of a team. 

How did he do this? He included in the book many inspiring and sometimes funny stories to highlight each of the important concepts to engage every type and level of reader. He created introspective questions at the end of each section to challenge team members to reflect on their personal commitment to the team. And he included 27 questions and five open ended questions at the back of the book to assess the readers effectiveness as a teammate. 

You Are the Team focuses on what Michael calls the 6 B's of being an effective teammate which are to Be Selfless, Trustworthy, Humble, Positive, Respectful and Great
