Former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink in his AWESOME Extreme Ownership gives us a final reminder of what we have been studying in this series.
THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP
*confident but not cocky
*courageous but not foolhardy
*competitive but a gracious loser
*attentive to details but not obsessed by them
*strong but have endurance
*a leader and a follower
*humble not passive
*aggressive not overbearing
*quiet not silent
*calm but not robotic; logical but not devoid of emotions
*close with the troops but not do close that one becomes more important than another or more important than the good of the team; not so close that they forget who is in charge.
“A Good leader has NOTHING (my emphasis) to prove, but EVERYTHING to prove.”
