In today’s episode, Jeff Boss shares four key leadership lessons from SEAL teams that are fundamental to business and everyday life.
As an entrepreneur myself, there are a ton of lessons learned that I can share with you. However, today I want to dive into a few key leadership lessons I’ve learned from the SEALs and how they apply not just to entrepreneurs, but to business. I get asked the same question all the time; “Do you miss it?” The short answer is “no”. You reach a point in your career where you’ve done enough in your job that it eventually just gets boring. For me, the SEALs got boring and I wanted to apply what we learned and how we operated to business teams to that they can operate in the same success. I knew the parallels were there, it was really just a matter of semantics. We all define success differently, but the means by which we go about succeeding remains the same. Like SEALs, entrepreneurs are not really average people. Therefore the skills learned from working in a small team within a larger organizational context are seamlessly transferable.
