Take Command: Lessons in Leadership: How to Be a First Responder in Business Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
What do elite members of the military, first responders in the disaster zone, and high-performing leaders in fast-paced, high-pressure, modern day organizations have in common?
The ability to have clarity of mind and purpose when surrounded by chaos. To operate at peak performance under risk. To be able to see clearly when others are blinded by fear, and act when others are paralyzed. To craft plans even with incomplete information, then execute those plans decisively - while still being nimble and adaptable enough to iterate as the terrain changes. To deliver in the clutch. To build teams with high impact, and then inspire those teams to follow you into the fire.
In this groundbreaking book on high-stakes leadership, Co-founder and CEO of Team Rubicon and former Marine Sniper Jake Wood, shows how to apply hard-learned lessons in leadership and teamwork from the battlefield and disaster zone to your professional life.
While most of our jobs don’t involve leading a tour of Marines through an ambush, or rushing into a relief zone just decimated by a hurricane, in today's fast-paced, hyper-competitive business environment, we are ALL on the front lines. And in an entrepreneurially-minded world where technology is constantly reinventing how we work, global competition is fierce, and industries are being disrupted overnight, success requires a new kind of leadership. This book is about how to become the kind of leader who gets results when the stakes are at their highest - how to Take Command.

It's one thing to lead people... it's another to truly inspire them by leading from the front, sharing the risk, being the last to sleep or eat, and showing that you truly and passionately care about their morale and well-being. Jake does this in everyday life and here he does an excellent job of explaining what true leadership is and how to "Take Command". Well worth the read.
Should be a course taught in high school. Too many young folks lack the desire to be successful and do not know what it takes to be so.
