Well-respected businessman, Jim Leighton is pleased to announce the release of his new book, "Getting F.I.T.: Unleashing the Power of Fully Integrated Teams." This new work focuses on the importance of team work as the author believes: “Teams of people are like cells of the human body.”

Baltimore, MD, July 13, 2013 --( Getting FIT is a book designed to help readers unleash the power of creating Fully Integrated Teams (“FIT”) in a non-sterile and refreshingly candid format. Leaders are becoming more than figureheads and bosses, they are team players who spur organizations toward effective change. Drawing on 35 years of experience, author Jim Leighton combines professional insight, moving personal stories, and practical tools to help individuals and teams transform to create highly successful outcomes and healthy organizational cultures. FIT elevates energy levels and gives readers grit to overcome obstacles and inspire others to find their own FIT on both intellectual and emotional levels.

Leighton believes that Fully Integrated Teams (FIT) equip organizations with the power of purpose-driven individuals. Married couples, families and Fortune 500 companies alike are discovering how a common purpose, guided by shared principles, and a future promise changes the world around them.

Living intentionally and holistically starts with creating positive relationships. Like his father used to say, “You get things done with people.” Every good leader measures the success of a team or company by the strength of its weakest member. There is not getting ahead of this reality. Become an advocate of FIT with hundreds who’ve discovered their purpose today.

"Getting F.I.T." is available in both print and ebook format.
