Jocko Willink retired Navy Seal, podcaster, and author received Silver and Bronze Stars for service in the Iraq War as commander of Seal Team 3 Task Unit Bruiser during the Battle of Ramadi. Willink co-author of Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership is the co-founder of the leadership consulting firm Echelon Front. He hosts the hugely popular Jocko Podcast and is viewed as someone who not just talks leadership but has lead teams in the most hostile and volatile environment...war.   When people ask Jocko what he does, how does he like to reply? Why has the Jocko brand seen so much success? What is the mission for Echelon Front? Jocko defines a mission. Is it different from a goal? What makes an excellent mission briefing? How does Jocko bring the mission to the Muster to ensure everyone at the Muster is on point? Is a great leader a curious person? We describe the character of Lieutenant General Sean MacFarland, retired 3 star General who led Jocko. Is a Red Team a tactic to employ to find weaknesses or potential breaches in your plan? Does Jocko debrief each day of the Muster? What does his own debrief look and sound like? The recurring theme from attendees at the Muster about leadership or company culture? The sweet spot between micromanagement and hands-off leadership styles Since publishing Dichotomy of Leadership, have any of his ideologies changed on leadership? Did Jocko tell himself a story that held him back in your own life? Detach emotionally. Does that sometimes cause friction in your relationship with his wife or kids? How far back can Jocko remember having a desire to take on the hardest thing? Jocko's Dad never let him quit at anything. Jocko explains the influence his Dad had on him. What would his kids say about their Dad? "There is no growth in the comfort zone" Does Jocko openly seek out discomfort? So many who serve their country return to civilian life and fall into darkness. What's the critical ingredient that shows them the light? To Jocko's teammates who died in combat, in a quiet moment, what does he say to them? The "Discipline Equals Freedom" mantra, what is the dichotomy in that simple statement?   LINKS   Jocko Podcast https://jockopodcast.com   Echelon Front Website https://echelonfront.com   The Australian Muster DECEMBER 4-5, 2019 - Sydney https://extreme-ownership-muster.myshopify.com   Support the show on Patreon. https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   Top 10 Cowbell songs of all time https://ultimateclassicrock.com/cowbell-songs/   Athletic Greens https://athleticgreens.com/us   The Mojo Radio Show Rocktober https://www.themojoradioshow.com/rocktober-2019.html   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/     The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.
