This is the most comprehensive book on leadership I have ever read . I can’t recommend it enough.The book is in depth and breaks down all the concepts iterated by the author in his previous books into tactical and applicable nuggets . Reading the book and applying it will help build the habits it takes to be a true leader . In a world where there is a gap in leadership globally , the book teaches the modern leader the principles to success on a personal and team level . It puts the team ahead - not merely in principle but by application and shows what potential true leadership can unlock . I highly recommend the book . I also highly recommend that the reader also reads the previous material ie extreme ownership , dichotomy of leadership to benefit maximally . Yes - check out the podcast and make it habitual . Jocko - thanks for keeping it real , thanks for bringing the high performance culture to us on a personal and team level -we need this , thanks for leading .
As advertised, this book is very practical and talks a lot about what to do, how to do it and, critically, why. It isn’t in any way “macho” or what you might expect from an ex army guy. Sure, he uses the army anecdotes to illustrate the points made and, if you like “army stuff” then that can make it more interesting. But, even if you don’t like army stuff, this book will be interesting and useful. There is no fluff, no messing around, no “consultant speak” - there’s just a bunch of fairly simple but very solid ideas about what it takes to be a good leader. Personally I was surprised by the focus on humility, which I think is critical in a leader, but I didn’t expect a Navy SEAL to give that so much emphasis. I was wrong there. Not much of this is new or rocket science, but I think it would be very useful for anyone who is coming into a leadership position for the first time. I think it also does a good job of helping people understand what leadership is, as opposed to “managership”. It’s a shame he doesn’t draw that out but a lot of new managers start off focusing on managing, not on leading, and this book can definitely help them see the difference.
