The ultimate guide on leadership from the 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 book 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
The office can feel like a pressure cooker, but it pales in comparison to combat. Former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink, who knows both worlds, offers a lean, practical guide to management techniques based on what he learned during his military career. Picking up on the principles that he explored in Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership, Willink provides concrete examples from the life-or-death setting of an elite combat unit, making his business advice feel less like generic corporate-speak and more like real life. The book’s subtitle refers to it as a field manual—and that’s exactly how it’s laid out. You can choose to read it cover to cover, but its short, punchy entries are meant to be consulted in the moment, whenever you need specific guidance. Whether you’re looking for advice on disciplining an employee who’s not pulling his weight or gaining confidence in your own decision-making, Leadership Strategy and Tactics is a workplace lifesaver you’ll love having on your phone.
