Leadership is about people, pure and simple, and on the right training ground can be taught and learned.
With a combined 50+ years of military service, we’re both products of some of the best leadership laboratories anywhere: United States military service academies. As a U.S. Navy SEAL and graduate of the U.S. Air Force Fighter Weapons School, we’ve learned elite processes and tools used to build leaders from the ground up.
But that alone isn’t enough. In focusing on serving others through our combined military and corporate experiences, we then developed a compass for instilling leadership strategies in the lives of those we’ve worked with. And this is what we bring to the table for you, the reader, to help you become the leader you’ve always wanted to be.
This book serves as a foundational framework for leadership led by example in stories of battles and victories in our military experiences as a U.S. Navy SEAL and Air Force Fighter Pilot, as well as business and corporate engagements. It’s time tested and steadfast in building the leadership skills needed to navigate today’s choppy waters using focus, trust and communication as a foundation.
Our intent is to provide simple, practical, time, battle and board room tested tools you can use right now to improve your leadership skills. Within the stories and teachings in this book, you’ll answer simple questions and identify ways in which you can more effectively step into leadership roles and strengthen your resolve in your daily life. This transformational process can begin on day one, and with consistency and effective effort, will last a lifetime.
By experiencing impactful events through our eyes that led to understanding the value of these key elements in leadership and relationships with others, we are certain this book will help you to navigate the challenges and opportunities of your lifelong leadership journey.
