Keeping it simple, this is the ‘cliff notes’ version for those who don’t have a lot of time to read (or don’t like reading that much) but want the ‘takeaways’ or ‘bottom line’ of the book. Not a lot to review because all that’s provided in its 35 pages are the twelve ‘key takeaways’ listed right up front, and then an analysis of each follows. It’s a nice arrangement that you can ‘cherry pick’ what you want, when you want or need it.
The principles contained are very easily adapted to the business, survival, NPT, SHTF, and any world you care to name, because the offering is pure and simple effective leadership, in this case, as taught and professed by former SEALs, but practiced by any high speed/low drag organization whether military or civilian.
If you’re a “kindle unlimited” member, you can read it for free. I usually buy the hard copy, in this case, I bought both the full-length version and the summary to get a quick view. I am not disappointed in any manner on the contents so far; in fact, I’m looking forward to reading the full-length book because the summary is so well done!
Here’s the link if you’re thinking about learning or having what you may have been taught reinforced. Cost isn’t that bad, either: Free, for Kindle Unlimited members and $6.99 for hard copies.
If you’re in any kind of leadership position, or desire that responsibility, no matter where you are and what you do, this will serve you well.
It’s worth adding to your reference library and incorporating the principles into your daily regimen.
Here’s a taste:
2. A team is only as good as its leader. The effects of good leadership are infectious.
12. Disciplined habits provide freedom in the form of more time, more confidence, and a better model for team members.
8. An effective leader decentralizes command, delegates responsibilities [and the authority to carry them out] to junior members of the team, trains them in leadership, and trusts their decision making processes.
