Editorial Reviews

Review

"(Military teambuilding offers) more dimensions than a ropes course, and requires initiative, creativity, and discipline. I can easily see the parallels to the workplace." - Stephen Covey"

From the Back Cover

Winning leadership strategies from the Navy's Elite Special Forces

With hands-on, field-tested advice from authors with decades of experience in business and combat, this straight-talking handbook shows how the leadership and team-building techniques of the elite, no-nonsense Navy SEALs can help you forge a powerful, goal-driven workforce, one that is prepared to take on--and triumph over--every challenge. Built around first-hand examples from both the military and business worlds, this step-by-step success manual will show you how to

  • Communicate objectives simply and forcefully
  • Build flexible and dynamic organizational structures
  • Gain the trust and loyalty of team members
  • Prevent bureaucracy within chains of command
  • Plan and prepare for crises

Enlist the Leadership Lessons of the Navy SEALs to transform your workplace from a group of disconnected individuals into a confident, goal-driven team.

"The SEALs are without doubt one of the highest-performing organizations on the planet. The secret ingredient is that every SEAL is a leader/teacher, engaged in continuous, interactive teaching and learning. This book . . . is a must read for all leaders."--Noel M. Tichy, Professor, University of Michigan Business School and author of The Cycle of Leadership

I am a profession College Coach. I have read many books on so called "Leaders" in the sports World. Wooden, Knight, Bryant, Hayes, Lombardi, Coach K, Dean Smith, Patino could all learn something from this book. This book gets to the point and proves the correct and effective technique. I have read maybe 30-40 books on leadership and coaching and I will say that this book is the best book I have ever read. After reading this book I gave a copy of it to all of the Coaches in my Athletic Department, and my Assistant Coaches. I can tell you not one person has not thanked me for getting them this book.

If you are a professional business man or woman, a coach, a community leader, teacher, you need this book!

If you are looking for a book on leadership this book will do more than you could imagine. If you could get a sneak peak into an elite group to see how they work together what would you pay? Better yet what would you learn? If you read this book you will find out. The book is written so it is easy to understand and follow. The book uses stories as ways to convey why something should be done as a leader. The biggest message that I got was doing something and moving is better than doing nothing and sitting, make a decision and go from there. You will not be dissapointed.

After I read this book I bought the cds and put them on my ipod. I listen to this book at least once a month. The voice of the reader is compelling. I look forward to traffic.

I am a career firefighter and have seen far too many examples of weak leadership. I figured the seals were a rather successful organization to look into. Although our jobs are different, there are many parallels. This is a great book for anyone who works in a team enviroment and wants to make their organization more successful.

I was intrigued by the title and the subject matter. As a military buff, I was very interested in learning how Seal leaders motivate and manage their teams through very difficult situation. I found the book to have way too many leadership "points" and ended up skipping through the last half of the book. However, it will look good on my bookshelf at my office.

The book is ok. The information is straight forward and what you would expect - basic leadership skills. The format is interesting because the author peppers in antecdotes about his Navy Seals experiences. The book is good for someone interested in understanding very basic 'blocking and tackling' leadership skills. More advanced leaders probably won't find this anything but a refresh of things they already know.

Very good book no matter what your career is. It is a self help sort of book that will give you skills on viewing things differently. This item came packaged well and on time. I have already passed it on for someone else to read and I hope they do the same.
