Shawn Parr: What Can Business Leaders Learn From A Navy SEAL Commander?
CEO of Bulldog Drummond shares what the military can tell us about teamwork, and creating a good work culture.
As corporate leaders explore how to elevate the effectiveness and professional excellence of their working teams, there is a lot to be learned from the Special Ops. Their collaboration with other branches of the military over the past decade make them an area of the military that both corporate America and the government can learn a lot from. I’ve been a longtime fan of the Navy SEALs and in my constant search for inspiration to implement work culture and leadership change, I felt they could be a superb group to learn from. While this highly secretive branch of the military keeps themselves, and their secrets, to themselves, books like Lone Survivor, and The Hunt for Bin Laden give us a look into how they operate. But nothing beats sitting down with a Navy SEAL Commander to understand how they think about leadership.
