Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win book review

Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win

If you like learning from awesome leaders and love stories of Navy SEALs, like I do, this book is the one you should buy next.

Jacko Willink and Leif Babin are the kind of leaders our country and business need.  Their principles are dead on target.  Each principle is described through real life or death scenarios from their missions in Afghanistan.  The stories are inspiring and scary as heck but show situations of leadership that are more intense than should you move to the cloud or not.  They actually have to deal with human lives.

They also give their business consulting experiences that parallel the missions,  so you can have real business scenarios to learn from for each experience.

The key principle is that leaders take full ownership in them self, their teams, their bosses and everyone they impact or influence.  Too many people want to point other directions for making true impact in their job or country.  If you are currently demotivated in your leadership, I definitely recommend reading this for a good all around motivating book.
