Courage to Execute: What Elite U.S. Military Units Can Teach Business About Leadership and Team Performance
The central theme and cornerstone position of this book is that the U.S. military in general, and its many elite organizations in particular, possesses a culture of high performance.  The six basic principles that operate at the foundation of high performance are leadership, organization, communication, knowledge, experience, and discipline or L.O.C.K.E.D.  When all are practiced effectively, team work emerges.  But, there is something else, the most elusive quality that exists at the heart of all elite military teams, the element that organizations and businesses deeply desire to perform more efficiently and effectively trust.    Trust is easily spent, but hard won. The structure of this book will follow the L.O.C.K.E.D. format and share compelling anecdotes from leaders in the many elite units of the U.S. Military.  As an employer of approximately 50 senior military officers that have served in elite units and communities such as the U.S. Navy Blue Angels and other fighter pilots from the U.S. Air Force and Marine Corps, U.S. Navy SEALS, and U.S. Army Rangers, the author has direct access to a multitude of personal leadership stories that illustrate the principles of L.O.C.K.E.D.: Leadership Organization Communication Knowledge Experience Discipline
