In The Dichotomy of Leadership, decorated former US Navy SEAL officers Jocko Willink and Leif Babin show you how to walk the fine line of being a true leader to accomplish missions in your personal and business lives and achieve the goal of every team: victory. Using lessons learned from the authors' elite combat and training experiences, Willink and Babin reveal how the use of opposing principles - leading while following, focusing and detaching, being aggressive yet prudent - will heighten your awareness, deepen your understanding, improve your dexterity and hone your ability to lead and win.

Loved it. Great stories and you can rest assured you're learning from the best. Not just in theories but in practice. Keep in mind a lot of MBA articles /research have been on the world class military approach to leadership, teamwork, motivation etc.
