Leadership and Decision Making for Business and Life

Leadership and Decision Making for Business and Life


Dave Berke

Echelon Front

The lessons learned in the Military apply everywhere. The fundamental principles of teamwork, creating simple plans that are easily understood, establishing clear priorities, and training subordinates to lead are universal. They apply to combat, business, and personal life. When coupled with the mindset of Extreme Ownership, the idea that blaming others doesn’t help you, leaders can take charge of their world and succeed. This will be an interactive session telling the history of facing overwhelming odds in combat, and the lessons learned from the sacrifice and loss, connecting them to the demands leaders face making hard decisions.
