Overview

War is terrifying and brutal. We watch depictions of it on the movie screen for entertainment, but we often don't consider what really happens on the battlefield. A crucial part of life on the battlefield is having a strong leader to run things while their troops are under fire.

Being a leader in normal life can sometimes feel as challenging as leading a company of troops into a war zone. Thankfully, most of us don't have to go into battle. But we still must make decisions that affect our clients and employees. What can a Navy SEAL's experience while protecting their country teach you about making those tough decisions?

That's what authors Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are here to do in Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win. They bring the management lessons of the battlefield right into your workplace. Combat experiences can help you become a better leader.
