U.S. Navy SEAL officers Jocko
Willink and Leif Babin were sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq and there they face a seemingly impossible mission: help secure Ramadi, a city
deemed “all but lost.” Sharing stories recounting acts of heroism, tragic loss,
and victories, the SEAL Team Three’s Task Unity Bruiser learns that leadership
is the most important factor in the success or failure of a mission.

The two returned home from
deployment and created a SEAL leadership training that helped create the next
generation of SEAL leaders. They then founded the Echelon Front which is a
company teaching the leadership principles they learned from their own experiences. They helped startups and Fortune 500 companies alike from a range
of industries build their high-performance teams and dominate their own battlefields.

Sharing the mindset and principles that allowed the SEAL teams to become successful in their difficult
missions, Extreme Ownership explains the process for applying leadership in any
team, family or organization. Each chapter shows different topics from Cover
and Move, Decentralized Command, to Leading Up the Chain which helps in explaining each principle’s importance and implementing them in the leadership

With captivating narrative and clear instruction, Extreme Ownership creates a revolution in business
management and challenges leaders to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.

    Leadership quality is shown upon both winning and losing. Graciously accepting loss helps prepare for the next battle and improves your ability to grapple with negativity and keep your fighting spirit intact.
  • Svyatoslav Yushinhas quoted4 years ago
    Extreme ownership simply means accepting the shortcoming of other people working under you. Though this may weaken your own performance and positions, this can only lead to career growth. This would exemplify your commitment to success, not only for you but, for your team. It will also motivate your team to follow your footsteps in leadership, especially upon understanding that a leader accepts others’ mistakes and can be followed as someone whose performance can be exemplified.

    Key Takeaway: Good leadership is not a talent, but a discipline.
