5 Leadership Lessons from Two Navy SEALs

This past weekend, I had the privilege of interviewing two Navy SEALs for our bi-annual Man Night at New Hope Eastlake. The wisdom that poured from their lips astounded me several times throughout the interview.

Here are the key takeaways that will help you on your own leadership journey:

  1. Humility is everything.
  2. Ambition may get you to your goal, but it will not sustain you. Your ambition must move to something greater than you in order to achieve sustained success.
  3. Leaders must excel about both character and competence. A lack of either erodes trust.
  4. Trust is key. No trust = no teamwork.
  5. We cannot achieve lasting greatness alone. We need others to help on the journey…just as others need us.

My best to you as you lead others to reach their highest potential in life and work.
