This is hands down the best leadership book I have ever read. If you lead any group of people, especially in business, you need to stop what you’re doing and order this book right now.
A leader should take responsibility for every failure.
A leader must explain the why and not just the what.
A leader must keep missions simple.
A leader must identify and mitigate risks before the mission.
A leader must lead both up and down. Lead up by giving superiors all information they need.
Leaders must build a decentralized command structure.
Leaders should not try to manage more than six people.
The lessons from former Navy SEALs Jocko Willink and Leif Babin go on and on.
I loved this book and can not recommend it enough. Go get it now.
