Description

The importance of balance as a leader by the number-one New York Times best-selling authors of Extreme Ownership.  

Every leader must be ready and willing to take charge, to make hard, crucial calls for the good of the team and the mission. Something much more difficult to understand is that in order to be a good leader, one must also be a good follower. This is a dichotomy - a Dichotomy of Leadership. It is, as authors Jocko Willink and Leif Babin explained in their best-selling first audiobook, Extreme Ownership, “Simple, Not Easy”.

Now, in The Dichotomy of Leadership, the authors explain the power inherent in the recognition of the fine line that leaders must walk, balancing between two seemingly opposite inclinations. It is with the knowledge and understanding of this balance that a leader can most effectively lead, accomplish the mission, and achieve the goal of every leader and every team: victory. 

Using examples from the authors' combat and training experience in the SEAL Teams and then showing how each lesson applies to business and in life, Willink and Babin reveal how the use of seemingly opposite principles - leading and following, focusing and detaching, being both aggressive and prudent - require skill, awareness, understanding, and dexterity, all attributes that can be honed. These dichotomies are inherent in many of the concepts introduced in Extreme Ownership and integral to their proper implementation and effectiveness. Dichotomy is essential listening for anyone looking to lead and win.

Ce que les critiques disent

"With so much of this audiobook illustrated by the authors' battlefield experiences, their dramatic, often combative, narration is not entirely out of place...the authors grasp the awesome responsibilities of leading, and their assertive performances convey an urgency that makes this lesson memorable." (AudioFile Magazine)

Excellent!

Dichotomy of Leadership is an excellent follow up to Extreme Ownership!!! The examples and how they are related to the business world make a lot of sense and really hammer home the principals they are trying to convey. Already listening to it for the second time and enjoying it just as much as the first time!!!

The Subtleties of Leadership

Read Extreme Ownership first, then The Dichotomy of Leadership to practically reinforce the lessons learned in the former. As essential as Good to Great is to Built to Last. Must read.

The best book on leadership - ever.

I have read many books on leadership and self-improvement. Some were worthless, many held some important information. Others were even really good but, if ever leadership was summarized into a concise, real world example, this book is it.

This was well done! I manage a restaurant and sometimes I feel like I am in a war zone instead and so my favourite part was listening to a battlefield story and how he would relate that to corporate management.

Best Leadership book

Perfect Companion to Extreme Ownership

This book can be very emotional at times. Fight through it, it's painful, but it will instill in you any lessons you did not learn reading Extreme Ownership, and reinforce those you did. The authors balance out some ideas from their previous book, helping you to understand how when and why to draw the line, along with more pertinent examples from their service and consulting practice. A glorious read.

A must read for every leader

The Dichotomy of Leadership is an outstanding follow up to Extreme Ownership that expands on and hones in on the principles laid out in Extreme Ownership. It is not necessary to have read Extreme Ownership prior to reading the Dichotomy of Leadership but is recommended as the principles are referenced several times throughout the book.

Jocko and Leif continue their same narrative for the chapter layout with a combat or training situation, followed by a thorough explanation of the principle, and the principle applied to a real life business environment.

The book, along with Extreme Ownership, should be required reading for all in any form of leadership.

Good follow-up but uneccesary

The first book in this series, "Extreme Leadership" is a must read and if you have not read it, you should. This follow-up is an expansion and more in-depth exploration of a obvious (but apparently ignored by some readers) concept that all forms and aspects of leadership must be balanced. Every good idea can be taken too far. The dichotomy of leadership and maintaining balance in shifting circumstances, within a group and with individuals, is why leadership is not as easy as simply maximizing a few principals.

Understanding that is important and the examples used in the book are relatable to anyone who has served in combat, but largely, a whole book on this principle is not as desperately called for as are the overall principles from Extreme Leadership, which actually already encompasses the ideas expressed again in this book, in more detail. Bottom line is that it was a good book and worth the time to read it, but it a bit of icing on the cake of the first book and offers some refinement, but nothing earth shattering that you should not already know. Of course, knowing and putting these things into practice are not the same thing. The devil is in the execution and the book does do a fairly good job of showing real life examples as a guide beyond textbook perfection.

The perfect sequel to Extreme Ownership

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Extreme Ownership laid the foundation for the message in this book to build off of. This book puts many of the challenges of leadership into perspective and gives you tools to filter the onslaught of questions you face as a leader.

Fantastic follow up the the first book.

Highly recommend for someone in a leadership role or learning to be a leader, and also for one who want to improve their daily living. I do believe the audio book is a better choice due the the fact it is being read by the authors, and they can set the tone for each point being made. So much can be gleaned from this text, and every revisit to this book, one could find more points that they can take and implement to their leadership and daily life.

great mixed book

between real military tales and relating them to business or life principles: what a great book. entertaining and informative. read by authors might have been a little over the top in their tone at times, but a great book nonetheless

A must read no matter your spot in the totem pole

This is a great addition to the original Extreme Ownership. A much needed follow up to help cement down lessons and applications. If you are on the fence about this book, don’t be. Just get it.
