Two Former Navy SEAL Officers to Keynote DSES 2015

DrivingSales Community,

We hope you all had a terrific summer and gearing up for an even better fall. We wanted to let you know Leif Babin, a decorated retired Navy SEAL Officer, will be back at DSES and this year he'll be co-presenting with his business partner, and former Navy SEAL Officer Jocko Willink. Leif spoke at DSES 2013 and received multiple standing ovations from the audience and we're honored to have him back along with Jocko to share their top-notch leadership advice with us and how it applies to business.

Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are decorated Navy SEAL Officers who successfully led SEALs on the battlefield, then built and ran SEAL leadership training. They served together in SEAL Team Three, Task Unit Bruiser: Jocko as task unit commander, Leif as a platoon commander.

In their DSES 2015 keynote presentation, Leif and Jocko will deliver powerful principles that will enable you to:

  • Implement Extreme Ownership
  • Build your own high-performance team
  • Effectively lead up and down the chain of command and win.

 

Leif and Jacko will be handing out and signing their book Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and WinBe sure to stop by, shake their hand and pick up your free copy at the reception on Oct. 19.

In the Battle of Ramadi, some of the toughest sustained urban combat in the history of the SEAL Teams, Jocko and Leif learned that leadership—at every level of the organization—is the most important thing on the battlefield. Now, they run their own leadership consulting company, Echelon Front LLC. Whether at war or in business, winning requires total ownership of mistakes and failures: Extreme Ownership.

This requires that leaders lead both up and down the chain of command. Leaders must impart knowledge and communicate down the chain so that the team understands and can execute effectively. Likewise, leaders must lead up the chain to educate, inform and better articulate the need for resources and facilitate approval of plans. For any team in any industry, a brutally honest assessment of what works and what doesn’t is necessary to achieve victory.

Who better to teach leadership skills than two Navy SEAL Officers who built and ran SEAL leadership training and fought in some of the toughest battles in Iraq. Don't miss this opportunity to hear from two of our heros and learn how you can be a better leader and teammate in your dealership. Join us at DSES Oct. 18-20 at the Bellagio, Las Vegas.
