About | Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALS Lead And Win by Jocko Willink, Leif Babin

Extreme Ownership is a book on leadership written by two former U.S. Navy SEALS, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. They have translated their experiences on the battlefield into actionable steps towards leadership success in the business world. In the book, the authors tell us that leaders are responsible for everything under their care. This means if there is faulty production in the warehouse, dissenting employees, a culture of distrust, or any breakdown along the supply chain it is ultimately the leader’s fault. The title gives away the overarching message of the book – Extreme Ownership. Using anecdotes from their time leading the SEAL Team Three Task Force Bruiser, Jocko and Leif highlight the responsibility of leadership and the character development necessary to lead a well-equipped team. Each chapter begins with a personal military example from their time in Iraq. From these personal stories a leadership principle and application to business is laid out. Time and time again success and failure is placed on the shoulders of the leader, not on those under them. There is no room or space for scapegoating. A leader is called to own up to the responsibility of his or her position.

Here's what you'll learn about in this audiobook summary:

If you're in leadership over anyone or seek to one day be, then this book is for you. Maybe you’re the CEO of a company, the point person on a project for school or work, managing volunteers, a pastor, or a parent… We all find ourselves in one leadership role or another. After listening to this summary, you'll have a clear vision of what it takes to be proactive, organized, disciplined, and mission-minded in becoming a true leader.
