The Gridiron Playbook for Building a Championship Business Team.

Raises the bar for business guides and expands over the normal approach other books preach.


In Team WORKS! former NFL player turned entrepreneur Chris Valletta describes the strategies and tools needed to build a championship-caliber business team, using athletic principles. He has spent his business career perfecting these traits - and has helped produce three multi-million dollar ventures in the process. This book raises the bar for business guides and expands over the normal approach other books preach. It’s like having your own personal employee activist, telling you exactly the right moves to make at the right time, to achieve the greatest possible results for your business.
With contributions from well-known sport legends, famous entrepreneurs, and a Foreword by Donald Trump, Valetta ties football tactics into building a championship business team. With humorous stories and real-life adventures Valetta’s book will entertain football lovers and non-football lovers alike.


Teamwork is a vital component for success, and the skill and insight required are vividly portrayed in this book. Give Team WORKS! your time and attention, and you will benefit a great deal from your investment. ~ Donald Trump

Having covered Chris since his earliest playing days at Texas A&M, I am not surprised by his business and personal success. Nor am I the least bit surprised that Chris Valletta—one of my all-time favorite quotes—would so eloquently put into words a business book that clearly illustrates the traits that make champions on the football field and in every business field. I absolutely love his sports analogies and how he applies them to business endeavors from Main Street to Wall Street. Chris is a winner, who truly has a game plan for success whether he is wearing a grimy uniform in the trenches on Saturday afternoon or dressed in his power suit for a Monday morning meeting in Manhattan. ~ Rusty Burson (Associate Editor of 12th Man Magazine at Texas A&M and author of 15 books )

Chris Valletta's Team WORKS! shares the fundamental keys to building a great business with a true focus on the "Little Things…” Chris is living proof that practicing the "Little Things" day in and day out builds the foundation for success in everything you do. ~ Warren Barhorst, CEO – Iscential

Nothing of any consequence happens without the involvement of other people. Wherever you go, you are going to get there with a team.
