The ultimate guide on leadership from the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Extreme Ownership.
In the military, a field manual provides instructions in simple, clear, step-by-step language to help soldiers complete their mission. In the civilian sector, books offer information on everything from fixing a leaky faucet to developing an effective workout program to cooking a good steak.
But what if you are promoted into a new position leading your former peers? What if you don’t get selected for the leadership position you wanted? How do you overcome imposter syndrome, when you aren’t sure you should be leading? As a leader, how do you judiciously dole out punishment? What about reward? How do you build trust with your both your superiors and your subordinates? How do you deliver truthful criticism up and down the chain of command in a tactful and positive way?
These are all questions about leadership—the most complex of all human endeavors. And while there are books out there that provide solid leadership principles, books like Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership, there is no leadership field manual that provides a direct, situational, pragmatic how-to guide that anyone can instantly put to use.
Until now. Leadership Strategy and Tactics explains how to take leadership theory, quickly translate that theory into applicable strategy, and then put leadership into action at a tactical level. This audiobook is the solution that leaders at every level need—not just to understand the leadership game, but also how to play the leadership game, and win it.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Jocko Willink learned more during his 20 years of service as a Navy SEAL than some of us pick up in a lifetime. Thankfully, he’s dedicated himself to translating that hard-won wisdom into straightforward advice for civilians. Picking up on the principles that he detailed in Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership, Leadership Strategy and Tactics takes the form of an everyday reference manual for leaders—or people who want to become leaders. Willink’s commanding-officer narration certainly made us sit up and pay attention, providing a glimpse into what it must have been like to serve under him. He uses concrete examples from the life-or-death setting of an elite combat unit to make crystal clear how his management principles work on the battleground—and in the boardroom. Whether you need to fire an employee who’s not pulling their weight or you’re second-guessing your own decision-making skills, this blunt but thoughtful advice will have you ready to take charge of any new situation with a veteran’s sharpened judgment.

Leading I am
Seems to be one that a mind hasn’t read in a while. Astonishing in wisdom.
Continually Setting the Bar
Thanks Jocko- I’ve learned a lot and am a better leader now after this and the EO books! And you narrated!
This Was Terrible
I got very little value out of this book. It’s about what you can expect from any sports or military based leadership guidance.
It’s a meathead’s view of how the world works and it’s minimally useful to non-meatheads.
