Extreme Ownership
Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win | Jocko Willink, Leif Babin
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, gave birth to a generation of leaders forged not in classrooms through hypothetical training but on the front lines of war through hands-on experience. U.S. Navy SEAL Teams were at the forefront of this transformation, emerging from the triumphs and tragedies of war with an understanding of leadership in the most challenging environments. Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are just such leaders-highly decorated Navy SEAL officers who served together in some of the toughest combat of the Iraq War. Together, they developed leadership lessons and organizational practices through years of experience, alongside heroes such as sniper Chris Kyle. They took those lessons and helped write doctrine for the next generation of SEALs as BUD/S instructors.Today, Babin and Willink apply these principles in the boardroom via their company Echelon Front. Across the country, they demonstrate how the SEAL approach to leadership that made them successful soldiers can help countless organizations and individuals achieve the highest level of success. With Extreme Ownership, their proven plan is available to everyone, with lessons that include:* EXTREME OWNERSHIP: Take it upon yourself to push harder and improve* CHECK THE EGO: Operate with a high degree of humility by admitting mistakes and taking responsibility* COVER & MOVE: Have each other's back and work together to accomplish the mission* And much more

Great book. Essential read for anyone in a leadership position.

Extreme Ownership is not predictable at all because I have just started reading the book. I have not been surprised at the book so far. But what is shocking is that Jacko Willink is a U.S. Navy Seal.

I started to skim chunks of the book as I got deeper into the book. I focused on the “principles” sections, more than the rest of the chapters. Useful tips that I‘ll keep with me (I took notes📝!); probably more of a “so-so” than “pick” for me, but with the takeaways/lessons, I went with “pick”.

My last completed book for 2019.

Recommend to me by a colleague as a solid guide to leadership. Hoping to gain some tidbits to implement on the job. #learningtolead #gottastartsomewhere

This is by far the best book on leadership I‘ve ever read. Former Navy Seals Jocko Willink and Leif Babin take real-life war scenarios and apply them to business principles. Each chapter focuses on a principle and then explains how that can be applied in business. Jocko now does consulting for businesses and I have to admit I‘m obsessed with his leadership style. Who better to learn from than the greatest military in the world.

Not only do you obtain leadership principles and advice from creditable sources, but you end up be highly motivated to make yourself a better person. It‘s a must read for anyone looking to improve in all facets.

Awesome read. Each chapter provides explanation of a leadership principle which occurred in the battle field, then gives an example of how that principle has also been carried over into business practices.
