Livres de Leif Babin
An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life.
Sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin’s SEAL task unit faced a seemingly impossible mission: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories in SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, they learned that leadership—at every level—is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails.
Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training that helped forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After departing the SEAL Teams, they launched Echelon Front, a company that teaches these same leadership principles to businesses and organizations. From promising startups to Fortune 500 companies, Babin and Willink have helped scores of clients across a broad range of industries build their own high-performance teams and dominate their battlefields.
Now, detailing the mind-set and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult missions in combat, Extreme Ownership shows how to apply them to any team, family or organization. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as Cover and Move, Decentralized Command, and Leading Up the Chain, explaining what they are, why they are important, and how to implement them in any leadership environment.
A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership revolutionizes business management and challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.
THE INSTANT #1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
From the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Extreme Ownership comes a new and revolutionary approach to help leaders recognize and attain the leadership balance crucial to victory.
With their first book, Extreme Ownership (published in October 2015), Jocko Willink and Leif Babin set a new standard for leadership, challenging readers to become better leaders, better followers, and better people, in both their professional and personal lives. Now, in THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP, Jocko and Leif dive even deeper into the unchartered and complex waters of a concept first introduced in Extreme Ownership: finding balance between the opposing forces that pull every leader in different directions. Here, Willink and Babin get granular into the nuances that every successful leader must navigate.
Mastering the Dichotomy of Leadership requires understanding when to lead and when to follow; when to aggressively maneuver and when to pause and let things develop; when to detach and let the team run and when to dive into the details and micromanage. In addition, every leader must:
· Take Extreme Ownership of everything that impacts their mission, yet utilize Decentralize Command by giving ownership to their team.
· Care deeply about their people and their individual success and livelihoods, yet look out for the good of the overall team and above all accomplish the strategic mission.
· Exhibit the most important quality in a leader—humility, but also be willing to speak up and push back against questionable decisions that could hurt the team and the mission.
With examples from the authors’ combat and training experiences in the SEAL teams, and then a demonstration of how each lesson applies to the business world, Willink and Babin clearly explain THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP—skills that are mission-critical for any leader and any team to achieve their ultimate goal: VICTORY.
Un buon leader non cerca scuse: trova sempre un modo di fare le cose. Se non metti nulla in discussione, nulla migliorerà. L'esitazione è un nemico che fa perdere opportunità. L'ego annebbia e distrugge ogni cosa. Disciplina significa libertà: metti la sveglia e buttati giù dal letto appena suona. Non arrenderti. E soprattutto, mai, ma proprio mai, dire ma. Questa è la regola aurea per avere successo nella vita e nel lavoro: assumersi la responsabilità degli errori e non scaricare la colpa sugli altri o sulle circostanze. Sia nelle relazioni personali che sul lavoro, con i colleghi o i sottoposti, il vero leader è colui che si chiede sempre: cosa potevo fare io, dove ho sbagliato, cosa posso fare per migliorare. Solo così si costruisce un buon team e si arriva al successo. Sono semplici, ma non facili, le regole imparate e testate sul campo - e che campi, quelli più caldi del pianeta - dagli ufficiali dei Navy seal Jocko Willink e Leif Babin, e se applicate portano alla vittoria. Dopo averle sperimentate con successo in battaglia e poi come istruttori nel corso di addestramento più duro che esista, quello per Navy seal, e dopo averle insegnate a migliaia di persone nei loro incontri di coaching, ora vogliono condividerle con tutti, insieme ad aneddoti tratti dalla loro esperienza di comandanti di alcune delle più pericolose e premiate missioni. Perché ciascuno possa vincere nella propria arena: lavoro, studio, vita privata.
