Johnny . . .
Shouldn’t be in a dead-end job.
Shouldn’t be in a dead-end bar.
Shouldn’t be in a dead-end life.
But he is.
It’s a hamster-wheel existence. Stocking warehouse store shelves by day, drinking too much whisky and beer by night. In between, Johnny lives in his childhood home, making sure his alcoholic mother hasn’t drunk herself to death, and looking after his idiosyncratic older brother Arty, whose world revolves around his laundromat job.
Rinse and repeat.
Then Johnny’s monotonous life takes a tumble. The laundromat where Arty works, and the one thing that gives him happiness, is about to be sold. Johnny doesn’t want that to happen, so he takes measures into his own hands. Johnny, along with his friend Goat, come up with a plan to get the money to buy the laundromat.
But things don’t always go as planned . . .
Amerikas berühmtester Navy-SEAL-Businesscoach Jocko Willink kennt die effektivsten Führungsprinzipien der Eliteeinheit. Seine Bücher schufen ganz neue Standards für Leadership-Qualitäten. Doch die praktische Anwendung dieser Prinzipien ist oft anspruchsvoller, als es zunächst den Anschein hat. Was ist beispielsweise, wenn man für eine Führungsposition ausgewählt wird, die man nicht will? Wie baut
man Vertrauen auf und übt Kritik in der Befehlskette nach oben und nach unten?
Willinks praktisches Handbuch hilft dabei, die Grundsätze der Navy SEALs täglich in die Praxis zu übertragen und Taktik in die Tat umzusetzen – das heißt, die Strategie der Navy SEALs zu verstehen und auf pragmatische Weise anzuwenden. Dazu liefert er eine einfache, klar strukturierte Schritt-für-Schritt-Anleitung, um Führungskräften dabei zu helfen, das zu tun, was sie tun sollen: führen.
Viele Bücher, die das Überwinden von Hindernissen und das Erreichen von Zielen in den Vordergrund rücken, vergessen dabei die wichtigste Komponente: Disziplin. Doch ohne Disziplin gibt es keinen Fortschritt. Keine Verbesserung. Keinen Erfolg.
In Der Weg der Disziplin bündelt Jocko Willink das notwenige Wissen über Disziplin und zeigt, wie sich Schwächen besiegen, Angst überwinden und beständiges Aufschieben verhindern lassen. Zudem finden sich im Buch spezifische Workouts zur physischen Leistungssteigerung für Anfänger, Fortgeschrittene und erfahrene Athleten sowie die besten Gewohnheiten um optimalen Schlaf und bestmögliche Ernährung zu gewährleisten.
In Ihrem neuen Werk Die zwei Seiten der Führung beweisen die Autoren nun, wie wichtig es ist, die richtige Balance zwischen Führen und Folgen zu finden. Nicht nur im Feld führt das richtige Maß an übernehmen und delegieren von Verantwortung langfristig zum Erfolg. Ausgehend von ihren Erfahrungen in den Navy-SEAL-Teams zeigen Sie, wie jede dieser Lektionen auch auf das unternehmerische Umfeld angewendet werden kann. Und welche Fähigkeiten auch im Management über Sieg oder Niederlage entscheiden.
