THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP Balancing the Challenges of Extreme Ownership to Lead and Win

by | Read by Jocko Willink, Leif Babin

Business & Finance • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

With so much of this audiobook illustrated by the authors' battlefield experiences, their dramatic, often combative, narration is not entirely out of place. This is the second leadership audio from the two Iraq-era combat officers, who say that great leaders must find the right balance in their approaches to leadership. They show how important it is to deliberate, finesse, and be thoughtful about dichotomous options such as aggression vs. caution, commanding vs. collaborating, or certainty vs. being deliberative. While the life-and-death lessons of military leadership that pervade this audio may seem far removed from civilian organizations, the authors grasp the awesome responsibilities of leading, and their assertive performances convey an urgency that makes this lesson memorable.
