Extreme Ownership means no more excuses.
Extreme Ownership means you take ownership and responsibility for all actions and circumstances surrounding you.
In the book Extreme Ownership, Jocko Willinik and Leif Babin share really hard hitting principles about being a leader.
The leadership principles are the same ones that make Navy SEALs so effective and have helped mega corporations find repeatable success.
John Ciecko III takes over the podcast for the series on leadership.
We have read the book and summarized how this applies to our lives both personally and professionally.
One story from Jeremy
Our new principal did not seem to appreciate me or the work we were doing to keep athletes safe. He did not come by and talk to us. He asked who questions every time I tried to do something extra.
Therefore he did not like me or support or program.
Actually he did not know me, my reputation, role or reason. He wanted to have all the answers before allowing his students to go on a field trip.
He needed more information that I failed to communicate to him.
In this podcast i tell a story of how i know he supports me and my program now because we have built the relationship and i provided needed information upfront and fill in gaps when needed.
Wrapping up the series
We also review the leadership series with the second book Dichotomy of Leadership
Our hope is that YOU will join us on this journey of extreme ownership and begin to lead your environment.
