Description

In this updated edition of the blockbuster best-selling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two US 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.

Combat, the most intense and dynamic environment imaginable, teaches the toughest leadership lessons, with absolutely everything at stake. Jocko Willink and Leif Babin learned this reality first-hand on the most violent and dangerous battlefield in Iraq. As leaders of SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, their mission was one many thought impossible: help US forces secure Ramadi, a violent, insurgent-held city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping, firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories, 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 to pass on their harsh lessons learned in combat to help forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After leaving the SEAL Teams, they launched a company, Echelon Front, to teach those same leadership principles to leaders in businesses, companies, and organizations across the civilian sector. Since that time, they have trained countless leaders and worked with hundreds of companies in virtually every industry across the US and internationally, teaching them how to develop their own high-performance teams and most effectively lead those teams to dominate their battlefields. 

Since its release in October 2015, Extreme Ownership has revolutionized leadership development and set a new standard for literature on the subject. Required reading for many of the most successful organizations, it has become an integral part of the official leadership training programs for scores of business teams, military units, and first responders. Detailing the mindset and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult combat missions, Extreme Ownership demonstrates how to apply them to any team or organization, in any leadership environment. A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.

Couldn’t listen to their voices... :(

I don’t know why I just couldn’t listen to their voices.... I know they just speak like that but it all sounded over dramatic and fake when they are probably the realest people out there. I tried 5 times, I just had to turn it off.

Very nice book, a lot of very interesting stories and powerful moments . The only reason for the 4 star rating is that I don't feel like the Book is long enough . Would have loved them to go deeper into specific leadership aspects .

unbearable to listen too

Mesages are solid. However, the narration is atrocious and makes it very difficult to get through. Make sure to listen to a sample before purchasing.

I don't read SEAL Books...

As a veteran, I hold a strong resentment for the unabashed self promotion of the SEAL community. This however is one of my favorite books, period. I am glad I set my ego aside and gave it a chance. This book contains all the best points of a capable combat leader, and many points are hidden within main points as well. I recommend this book to all people, regardless of their profession.

Sound issues?

The start of almost every sentence from Jocko sounded like the first half of the word was never recorded. I listened to this over Bluetooth headphones and double checked with the IPhone 6s speakers only.

I can’t think of a better way to describe the issue. A scratchy start of sound that is missing the first half of the first word in the start of every sentence that followed any significant pause. The parts read by Leif did not hanged this problem and were delivered like you might expect.

Still worth getting us

Wow. This one surprised me!

Narrated by the team guys themselves, the authenticity is high from the get-go.

The structure of the book is solid, alternating between battle scenes, and the practical take-away, applicable to the modern business owner/leader.

The central premise is "taking extreme ownership" – as only taking FULL 100% responsibility for your actions and business decisions: can you be an effective leader, correct what's not working, and more.

It's a good book that I consumed quickly – to me it was the audio equivalent of a page-turner. I couldn't listen to it fast enough, and will relisten to it soon:)

A Must Read!

If you're committed to being a better leader, then this book is a must-read. The authors explain in detail how the hard lessons learned on the battlefield can translate and be applicable in the business world. As someone who is both an Iraq Veteran and small business owner, this book had a mediate applications. I am confident that if you give this book and honest listen and sincerely apply the lessons learned, he will reap benefits from this amazing book. To the authors, thank you for your selfless service to our beloved Republic.

Ridiculouis !

Here's the book in one sentence:

"Accountability is a key performance dimension of effective leaders".

There you go, I've saved you time and money.

I applaud the enthusiasm of the authors, it is entertaining to listen to their spirited narration.

But seriously, these guys have been selectively & voluntarily recruited, highly trained, supported by the best technology and weaponry in history of mankind, over resourced, all the while collecting government salary and benefits...and they tell us their success is because of their remarkable leadership? "There are no bad teams, just bad leaders", really? On what planet?

Here's a revelation from someone who has led high performance business teams successfully in highly competitive markets:

There are bad work teams, defective products, clueless c-suite execs,.obsolete technology, under resourced processes, dysfunctional comp plans, bad market strategy, and on and on. That's the real business world, believing that Extreme Ownership is all a leader needs to demonstrate to drive success is laughable.

There have been enumerable examples of military command and control systems & ultra leaders applied to corporations and politics in our world history, the results speak for themselves.

Sometimes good

The book opens with the usual disclaimer that all of the stories and conversations have been modified, personalities combined, timelines changed, and some details or other parts added to make everything fit, etc., to protect privacy and confidentiality and whatnot. What follows are hours of badly scripted dialog to sell the authors' consulting services. There are few good stories in this book and several really illustrative leadership applications that will make you think. I did take a few things away from this book, but it is mostly bland made up conversational filler. I broke away twice to listen to 2 other books before finishing this.

Starts Strong...then fades

I really liked this when I started. So much so that I bought another copy for my son. But then it starts to get predictable. Then it gets more predictable, and pedantic, and - frankly - tiresome. I wish it was otherwise, but that's my take.

Leadership from Soldiers on Business

Overall there is nothing really new to learn. I've read other books that offer similar principles to leadership. If you like war stories, then you'll enjoy the stories they tell about the battle field. If you are looking for new insights into business leadership you'll not find it here. Honestly it is the same ideas that have been used time and again. But it might also remind you of things you've forgotten about leadership. And it might inspire you to try some of those leadership principles again. These guys are definitely American hero's, but they not are going to change anything in the business world.

Sehr gutes Buch zum Nachdenken

Die Autoren stellen mit Extreme Ownership eine Sammlung teilweise bekannter Management-Techniken in ein neues und frisches Licht. Die heutigen Manager sehen sich häufig gefangen in ihren wahrgenommenen Sachzwängen und politischen Spielchen und eine Kündigung als das schlimmste Ereignis auf Erden. Die Autoren bringen mit ihrer militärischen Vergangenheit und ihren Erzählungen dies wieder in eine richtige Perspektive und leiten die Grundsätze solide ab.

Insgesamt ein sehr gutes Buch und eine klare Empfehlung. Dankenswerterweise sind die Autoren auch die Sprecher des Hörbuches, was für mich zum Hörgenuß beigetragen hat.

90% war stories, 10% leadership principles

Würden Sie es noch mit einem anderen Hörbuch von Jocko Willink and Leif Babin und/oder Jocko Willink and Leif Babin versuchen?

No, not after this audiobook

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

There are lessons from Navy Seals for Leaders incorporated in that book, but you listen to 90% stories about situations in war and get one sentence of leadership inspiration out of it.
If you want to listen to war stories, this is the book for you. If you want to learn about leadership, don't waste your time with this book.

No science, but very nicely written and spoken!

I am working on my taxonomy of leadership to make me and my teams more efficient. I usually focus on scientific papers, but this book gave a new refreshing perspective on leadership.

I listened to it twice. First round was just to see if it was any good, second round with pen and paper.

I do not agree with everything stated in the book, like there are only two kinds of leaders; effective and ineffective. It is true that in the long run one is either effective oe ineffective, but there are certain levels. Not everyone is effective or ineffective in the same way.

While reading it, take extreme ownership and reflect the information.

In conclusion, well done!!

Respect

I was really expecting way way less then I really got. Coming from Europe I don't have the info or background regarding the military, therefore I was sceptical about this audio book. But is was better than everything I expected. It brought huge value to my business an privat life.
