What do elite members of the military, first responders in
the disaster zone, and high-performing leaders in fast-paced, high-pressure,
modern day organizations have in common?
The ability to have clarity of mind and purpose when
surrounded by chaos. To operate at peak performance under risk. To be able to
see clearly when others are blinded by fear, and act when others are paralyzed.
To craft plans even with incomplete information, then execute those plans decisively—while
still being nimble and adaptable enough to iterate as the terrain changes. To
deliver in the clutch. To build teams with high impact, and then inspire those
teams to follow you into the fire.
In this groundbreaking book on high-stakes leadership, cofounder
and CEO of Team Rubicon and former Marine Sniper Jake Wood, shows how to apply
hard-learned lessons in leadership and teamwork from the battlefield and
disaster zone to your professional life.
While most of our jobs don’t involve leading a tour of
Marines through an ambush, or rushing into a relief zone just decimated by a
hurricane, in today’s fast-paced, hyper-competitive business environment, we
are ALL on the front lines. And in an entrepreneurially-minded world where
technology is constantly reinventing how we work, global competition is fierce,
and industries are being disrupted overnight, success requires a new kind of
leadership. This book is about how to become the kind of leader who gets
results when the stakes are at their highest—how to Take Command. Download and start listening now!
