LOSE A LITTLE CONTROL

The most common answer I hear from leaders who have a hard time letting go is a feeling of ‘loss of control.’ They worry that the ship will crash when they begin taking their hands off the wheel. This is human nature. As a junior officer in the SEALs, I thought I had to lead everything because of the nature of my title. However, it was a series of great mentors who taught me that the true sign of a leader is how the team or organization performs when the leader leaves.

DISCIPLINE = FREEDOM

“We spent the day with Dave during our global leadership summit. Dave was incredible. In a few hours he inspired our team and communicated simple, no non-sense methods that we have used to collaborate, lead and win. Extreme Ownership has become a cornerstone of our leadership philosophy at TaskUs.”
