Prior to reading Dichotomy of Leadership, I started implementing Extreme Ownership. Initially I made huge strides and wins, tackling those ‘lesser’ weaknesses of mine. It’s a lot like learning any new skill or sport (ahem BJJ). Yet I was avoiding those bigger, scarier weaknesses. As I’ve learned with Extreme Ownership, what you don’t own, owns you.

THE INSTANT #1 NATIONAL BESTSELLERFrom the #1 New York Times bestselling authors of Extreme Ownership comes a new and revolutionary approach to help leaders recognize and attain the leadership balance crucial to victory. With their first book, Extreme Ownership (published in October 2015), Jocko Willink and Leif Babin set a new standard for leadership, challenging readers to become better leaders, better followers, and better people, in both their professional and personal lives.
With Dichotomy of Leadership, I’ve been given new insights and awareness on how to step further into leading myself and my team. It answers those questions that would keep me up at night, especially how to handle accountability of my team and not be too rigid. I’ve failed a lot as a leader this past year, and yet with Dichotomy of Leadership, I have a new arsenal of solutions to support me with fine tuning my knowledge and leading a stronger, better life.
What distinguishes this book from the rest is the brutal honesty with which Jocko and Leif write about their experiences. Their willingness to humble themselves has inspired me to take a deeper look into the mirror.
Time to get UP. Dust Off. Move Forward. And GO with a new arsenal of tools to practice. If you want to find out how to lead and how to win, this book is your guide. I opened the first page and instantly was hit in the face with a little something called GET SOME. First, if you’re reading this and haven’t read Extreme Ownership go do that. Second, if you lead other leaders buy each of them a copy of both books too. Balance in leadership is the key to success. Too many leaders lack the ability to recognize those dichotomies but Jocko and Leif bring the theories to life by sharing tales of battle, and real world scenarios in business. If you haven’t read Jocko’s “Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Training Manual,” go get it, but the real reason I bring that text up here is because one of his first thoughts explains Why he does what he does. The sacrifice of those heroes lost in battle, the sacrifice these men have made to bring us this book cannot be overstated.
This is a great follow up book from Extreme Ownership and expands on the principles of Leadership. Jocko Willink and Leif Babin take simple principles that can be used in both a professional and personal settings. Expanding on the Dichotomy we have as leaders will help each individual who reads this become a better individual and leader! This book is great at all levels from a CEO to an entry level position. If looking for a great book for yourself or even better a gift it will no disappoint!
HIGHLY recommend this one. While I love their 1st book, Extreme Ownership, and use it as a reference in classes, this one is awesome. By focusing on the competing demands and requirements that are placed on leaders, and emphasizing the need to find balance in all of these complex interactions, the authors concisely, and relatively simply lay out some significant leadership challenges and demonstrate tactics to solve them.
