Extreme Ownership – I am in control of my life only when I take ownership of everything, instead of blaming others and making excuses.
Taking Initiative – problems are not going to get solved by themselves.
Adapt – the situation and environment are constantly changing.
Discipline Equals Freedom – how are these two tied together?
Humility – what is EGO, why and how is it beneficial to tame it in a leadership context.
The Four Laws of Combat (battlefield principles) and their application:
‘Cover and Move’ – the importance of teamwork. If the whole team doesn’t win, nobody wins.
Simplicity – details vs concepts, clarity vs complexity, finding the balance between them.
Prioritize and Execute – decision making, navigating between options and justifying the decisions.
Decentralized Command – freedom to decide, ‘the captain of information’.
