Do you need to be a DICK to be a successful leader?

Hello All. I wanted to share a really good docu-Youtube video produced by Max Joseph. The video called DICKS: Do you need to be one to be a successful leader?, documents Joseph’s quest to figure out whether being a successful film director requires you to be a tyrant, or as Joseph refers to it, a “Dick” to the people that work for you. Although his video is directed at the film industry, it is quite applicable to any type of leadership position. I personally enjoyed his unrelenting quest to interview director Peter Berg. I highly recommend the video. Great job @maxjoseph

Extreme Ownership – Jocko Willink

Hello All. I wanted to share this really inspiring 14min TEDx talk from the TEDxUniversityofNevada delivered by former Navy SEAL Jocko Willink. It is about taking ownership over everything in your life and pushing on as a leader. It was told using the example of his experiences fighting in Ramadi, Iraq, where he served as commander of SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser. This is so very inspiring and a great life lesson for everyone. It is a great message to teach our kids. Jocko Willink’s Twitter page can be found at
