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.
Practical examples - many are obvious in my opinion but nonetheless a practical field guide for good thought and accountability.45
For anyone in a Leadership position this is a must read. The leadership principles conveyed in this book were spot on and were easy to understand because they were applied to real world, everyday situations.55
Amazing read. Simplistic, straight forward, down to earth, and great personal experiences from the author that makes this book amazing and some. By far one of the best leadership books out there. Have not read Jocko’s other books,(but definitely going too), and still grasped every drop of knowledge. Gives an unbelievable approach on the theory of leadership and outlines how one should approach leadership and the challenges one might face along the journey.55
Detailed, clear, concise leadership information and principles. Phenomenal read as per usual from Jocko. Must read for anyone in or aspiring to be in a leadership role. Not a requirement to have read Extreme Ownership or Dichotomy of Leadership first, I would recommend doing that though - it helps to be familiar with some of the background.55
