Author / John


This week, former SEAL, author, and speaker, Jocko Willink [@jockowillink] joins The Crew to discuss something he all too familiar with. Getting CEO’s and even parents to embody the leadership qualities best suited to accomplish the task is what Willink does. It should come as no surprise that this author of “Extreme Ownership” does not believe in coddling or sheltering people from life’s harsh realities. However, Willink has seen the benefits of empowering clients with leadership skills and self awareness, enabling them to conquer life’s hurdles.

His unique military background has provided him with a deep understanding of the implications of poor vs superior leadership. Now, he shares his knowledge through his publications, podcast, and most recently, a children’s book. Find out how you can strike the perfect balance within what Willink describes as the “dichotomy of leadership”.


Jocko Willink is no stranger to social media. He can be found on instagram, facebook, twitter, and you tube. This guy is everywhere spreading the leadership gospel. Be sure to check out his podcast by finding the link in our show notes.
