An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life.

Sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin’s SEAL task unit faced a seemingly impossible mission: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories in SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, they learned that leadership—at every level—is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails.

Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training that helped forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After departing the SEAL Teams, they launched Echelon Front, a company that teaches these same leadership principles to businesses and organizations. From promising startups to Fortune 500 companies, Babin and Willink have helped scores of clients across a broad range of industries build their own high-performance teams and dominate their battlefields.

Now, detailing the mind-set and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult missions in combat, Extreme Ownership shows how to apply them to any team, family or organization. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as Cover and Move, Decentralized Command, and Leading Up the Chain, explaining what they are, why they are important, and how to implement them in any leadership environment.

A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership revolutionizes business management and challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.

THE INSTANT #1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER

From the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Extreme Ownership comes a new and revolutionary approach to help leaders recognize and attain the leadership balance crucial to victory.

With their first book, Extreme Ownership (published in October 2015), Jocko Willink and Leif Babin set a new standard for leadership, challenging readers to become better leaders, better followers, and better people, in both their professional and personal lives. Now, in THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP, Jocko and Leif dive even deeper into the unchartered and complex waters of a concept first introduced in Extreme Ownership: finding balance between the opposing forces that pull every leader in different directions. Here, Willink and Babin get granular into the nuances that every successful leader must navigate.

Mastering the Dichotomy of Leadership requires understanding when to lead and when to follow; when to aggressively maneuver and when to pause and let things develop; when to detach and let the team run and when to dive into the details and micromanage. In addition, every leader must:
· Take Extreme Ownership of everything that impacts their mission, yet utilize Decentralize Command by giving ownership to their team.
· Care deeply about their people and their individual success and livelihoods, yet look out for the good of the overall team and above all accomplish the strategic mission.
· Exhibit the most important quality in a leader—humility, but also be willing to speak up and push back against questionable decisions that could hurt the team and the mission.

With examples from the authors’ combat and training experiences in the SEAL teams, and then a demonstration of how each lesson applies to the business world, Willink and Babin clearly explain THE DICHOTOMY OF LEADERSHIP—skills that are mission-critical for any leader and any team to achieve their ultimate goal: VICTORY.

自律,不是你我的敵人,而是最佳盟友。

獲得自由的唯一方法,就是自律。


亂吃一通,睡眠不足,意志力薄弱,做事「拖、懶、慢」。總是放不下一堆蠢事,卻忽略了最重要的事。天啊,我難道就這樣過完一生嗎?


暢銷書《主管這樣帶人就對了》(Extreme Ownership)作者喬可.威林克(Jocko Willink),在本書指出,紀律(discipline)絕不容許這些事情發生!


提到「紀律」,很多人想到主管訓斥部屬,或是父母管教子女,紀律似乎伴隨著責罵或懲罰之類的負面印象。甚至一般人以為紀律等於要克制自己無法有所選擇,代表不能享受生活或失去自我。很多人把紀律當成敵人,好像遵守紀律等於失去自由。另外有一群人,貪圖當下的滿足,甚至忍不住抄捷徑。


本書作者威林克指出,這正是問題所在,也是天大的謊言。事實上,捷徑根本是假的;輕鬆取巧純屬謊言,唯有紀律才是王道。


威林克在書中提出贏得成功的必備法則,這是他在美國海豹部隊服役20年期間所學習的成功法則,那就是紀律。


自高中畢業後,作者花費人生大部份時間在海豹部隊裡,從小兵一直獲提拔晉升,最後成為特種部隊指揮官,帶領部隊參與伊拉克戰爭。無論從軍或日常生活,他向來堅持自己的原則,那就是加強修練身心,以?到成就生活中各個層面的自由。


大部份的書籍,教人如何克服障礙和達到目標,卻沒有告訴我們,最重要的關鍵因素在於「守紀律」,也就是自律。本書作者威林克提供完整的藍圖,從制定自律的策略到克服弱點的戰術,指導我們征服「拖、懶、慢」的心魔。此外,他也特別為初學者、中階和高階者提供健身訓練的指導,甚至教導我們如何培養最好的睡眠習慣,注重飲食、克服甜食的誘惑,達到保持最佳體能、強化心智的目的。

你管不了別人,只管得了自己,你的意志由你掌控。守紀律不但不會失去自由,而且,我們可以因此擺脫「拖、懶、慢」的擺布,避免浪費時間,比以往更強壯、更敏捷,大幅提升健康。


跟隨書中的建議,會發現由內至外的改變,變得更強壯、更機智、更靈活和更健康,最後,你會發現找到真正屬於自己的自由。


|專業推薦|


?本書作者威林克引導大家去認識自我、釐清自我的目標,持續付諸行動。過去的創傷、挫敗與痛苦都跟現在的思考與行動都沒有關係,無須受制於過去,而是朝向自己決定好的目標而行動。如果我們開始實踐書中的建議,你會慢慢發現「紀律」與「自由」這看似對立的兩端將連接在一起,原來精神上的自由源於內在秩序的建構,就像威林克的建議,如果我們能下定決心,不計利益得失,擁抱這股冰冷又無情的力量,精神上就會感到無比的自由。

——徐國峰(運動作家)


??太方便的生活不是真的自由,你只會愈來愈弱。找到自我認同與人生哲學,你才能確保自己做的事符合性格、天賦與興趣。如此一來,你做每一件事都是同時在訓練自己與貢獻世界。當你做這些事的時候,你變得更強,世界也變得更好,而你始終樂在其中。這是建立永續紀律的基礎。唯有建立紀律,你才能得到真正的自由。

——蔡志浩(認知心理學家)


?別再放任自己的惰性,因為那不會讓你找到更高的使命。如果你想要成就某些事情,即便只是成就自己,唯一該做的,就是「贏過昨天的自己。」不管你想成就自己還是改變世界,自由與成功的唯一方案就是開發自己、持續進步。說穿了,就是「紀律」二字而已。

"These guys are intense. And they bring that same fire to their narration in the audiobook. Listen to these insanely competent SEAL officers tell you exactly how to make a team successful through their firsthand experiences in business and combat." - The Hustle

An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership audiobook that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life.

Combat, the most intense and dynamic environment imaginable, teaches the toughest leadership lessons, with absolutely everything at stake. Jocko Willink and Leif Babin learned this reality first-hand on the most violent and dangerous battlefield in Iraq. As leaders of SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, their mission was one many thought impossible: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a violent, insurgent-held city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping, firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories, they learned that leadership—at every level—is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails.

Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training to pass on their harsh lessons learned in combat to help forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After leaving the SEAL Teams, they launched a company, Echelon Front, to teach those same leadership principles to leaders in businesses, companies, and organizations across the civilian sector. Since that time, they have trained countless leaders and worked with hundreds of companies in virtually every industry across the U.S. and internationally, teaching them how to develop their own high-performance teams and most effectively lead those teams to dominate their battlefields.

Since it’s release in October 2015, Extreme Ownership has revolutionized leadership development and set a new standard for literature on the subject. Required listening for many of the most successful organizations, it has become an integral part of the official leadership training programs for scores of business teams, military units, and first responders. Detailing the mindset and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult combat missions, Extreme Ownership demonstrates how to apply them to any team or organization, in any leadership environment. A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.

The importance of balance as a leader by the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Extreme Ownership.

Every leader must be ready and willing to take charge, to make hard, crucial calls for the good of the team and the mission. Something much more difficult to understand is that, in order to be a good leader, one must also be a good follower. This is a dichotomy; a Dichotomy of Leadership. It is, as authors Jocko Willink and Leif Babin explained in their bestselling first audiobook Extreme Ownership, “Simple, Not Easy.” Now, in The Dichotomy of Leadership, the authors explain the power inherent in the recognition of the fine line that leaders must walk, balancing between two seemingly opposite inclinations. It is with the knowledge and understanding of this balance that a leader can most effectively lead, accomplish the mission and achieve the goal of every leader and every team: Victory.

Using examples from the authors' combat and training experience in the SEAL Teams and then showing how each lesson applies to business and in life, Willink and Babin reveal how the use of seemingly opposite principles—leading and following, focusing and detaching, being both aggressive and prudent—require skill, awareness, understanding and dexterity; all attributes that can be honed. These dichotomies are inherent in many of the concepts introduced in Extreme Ownership, and integral to their proper implementation and effectiveness. Dichotomy is essential listening for anyone looking to lead and win.
