7 Lessons From Navy Seals

I just read a post that I liked called  7 Lessons Entrepreneurs Should Learn From The Navy Seals. The author highlights seven lessons from Navy Seals that apply to entrepreneurs:

  1. Take Decisive Action
  2. Fear Nothing
  3. Seek Excellence, not Fame
  4. Lock and Load
  5. Leave no Man Behind
  6. Plan Your Mission, but Prepare to Pivot
  7. Make Peace with Constant Chaos

My take: Almost any organization would improve dramatically if it could capitalized on its resources nearly as effectively as Navy Seals. These lessons are about making plans, taking action, staying flexible, and cherishing teamwork — good stuff!

The bottom line: We should all be a bit more like Navy Seals

About Bruce Temkin, CCXP
I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about these topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.

  1. Love it! The Seals are hard core and entrepreneurs could use a bit of guidance.

    Leadership training wouldn’t hurt either.
