The ultimate guide on leadership from the #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of Extreme Ownership.

In the military, a field manual provides instructions in simple, clear, step-by-step language to help soldiers complete their mission. In the civilian sector, books offer information on everything from fixing a leaky faucet to developing an effective workout program to cooking a good steak.

But what if you are promoted into a new position leading your former peers? What if you don't get selected for the leadership position you wanted? How do you overcome imposter syndrome, when you aren't sure you should be leading? As a leader, how do you judiciously dole out punishment? What about reward? How do you build trust with your both your superiors and your subordinates? How do you deliver truthful criticism up and down the chain of command in a tactful and positive way?

These are all questions about leadership-the most complex of all human endeavors. And while there are books out there that provide solid leadership principles, books like Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership, there is no leadership field manual that provides a direct, situational, pragmatic how-to guide that anyone can instantly put to use.

Until now. Leadership Strategy and Tactics explains how to take leadership theory, quickly translate that theory into applicable strategy, and then put leadership into action at a tactical level. This audiobook is the solution that leaders at every level need-not just to understand the leadership game, but also how to play the leadership game, and win it.

Former Navy SEAL Willink (Extreme Ownership) here explains how to translate leadership theory into pragmatic strategy and how to activate leadership at a tactical level. These combat-learned principles are what listeners would expect from the former commander of the most decorated U.S. special ops unit of the Iraq War. Willink's leadership ideas are based on fundamental military instruction and are organized into two main parts: leadership strategies and leadership tactics. Business principles are cloaked here in military teachings about strategy, while the tactical discussion explains his guidance for leaders interested in making behavioral adjustments to enhance their relationship with their teams. The author emphasizes the importance of humility, and he makes direct connections between leadership in the world of business and leadership learned via combat experience. However, in this case, the author is not preparing troops for the terrible reality of combat. To some listeners, especially those with no combat experience, the author's emphatic, deadly earnest narration may come across as arrogance or bravado. Nevertheless, the author's sound principles and uncompromising commitment to self-discipline are relevant to any leader facing the stress and uncertainty of achieving business success. VERDICT Recommended for university libraries supporting business curriculum and larger public libraries.—Dale Farris, Groves, TX
