He gives you an insider look at The Apprentice, at the Trump Organization, and at how other current business leaders with military training, like Ross Perot (Founder, EDS), Marty Evans (CEO, Red Cross), Bill Coleman (Founder, BEA Systems), and Roger Staubach (CEO, Staubach Company) have relied on the ten principles to achieve success. Duty. Do what youre supposed to do, when youre supposed to do it. Impeccability. If it is worth doing, it is worth doing right. Passion. Be passionate about what you do, and do what youre passionate about. Perseverance. Its not the size of the dog in the fight, its the size of the fight in the dog. Planning. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Teamwork. There is no "I" in TEAM. Loyalty. Remain loyal, up, down, and across your organization. Flexibility. In all aspects of life, the person with the most varied responses wins. Selfless Service. Give back. Integrity. Take the harder right over the easier wrong.
In the military, theres no margin for error. Wrong decisions are deadly decisions. Likewise, in business, wrong decisions can cost you your job. But Kelly Perdew teaches you how you can take the can-do military spirit and be all you aspire to beand win.
