058: Embracing Accountability For Exponential Growth
Today I share a presentation I recently gave to the Elite Practice Mastermind group I coach at our quarterly meeting in New Orleans. The focus of the presentation is the concept of extreme ownership based on the book Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win, by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. If you have not read it, I recommend checking it out. I opened my meeting by playing the first chapter of the audio book and defining the core of what constitutes an effective leader in any leadership endeavor. Whether it is in a military or business atmosphere, leadership is key to the success of any mission or goal. Accepting responsibility for failures, overcoming weaknesses and consistently working harder are all part of being or becoming an effective leader. I provide the tools to define your level of leadership success and then cover how to become a better leader for your team to achieve greater business success.
All of that and more on today’s episode of The Six Figure Side Gig.
