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 en 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)

Its OK

Not as ground breaking as extreme ownership, as the authors themselves say it is from the outset. I'm a big Jocko fan but I should have passed on this one rather than use up a credit. Ah well.

100% recommend!

Being a military member, I really appreciated the stories and examples of how to be an effective leader but I also really appreciated the direct bridge that is made for these practical principles into a civilian work environment or volunteer leadership position of many kinds. I highly recommend this reading, it was easy to follow relate to and apply.

Outstanding

I am so glad I have the audio version. This was one of the few times I was able to connect lessons from the book to my own life. I wish I had found this earlier so that I could have used the incredible power of this book to inform my decisions. From now on I will consider the dichotomy of leadership.

Love the structure!

The format Jocko and Leif use is truly engaging. I love the use of military experiences to highlight leadership principles and follow them up with examples of business scenarios they have applied them to. As someone who runs a small business and is a new executive where I work, their stories helped me identify areas where that I need to improve. The business applications helped me visual how I could apply the principles. A terrific read and their voices are the perfect match for the tone and content.

Amazing book

So many amazing things to learn in this book and EXTREME OWNERSHIP by the same authors!

Everyone had something learn from this book and I would recommend reading
EXTREME OWNERSHIP before this book as it is referenced a lot!

Loved every minute of this book.

Good book. Terrible afterword.

These guys transpose lessons and tactics learned from combat into the corporate world. I like the principle of taking responsibility and ownership for any situation. Despite the fact that they plug the name of their company on a regular basis, I liked the book. That was until I read the afterwords. This part basically consists of telling you it is ok for Americans to kill people to "keep you safe". That God must be a Navy Seal...
This part is political and repeated so many times that, for me, it ruins the book.
Their 1st book is actually pretty good though.

Great read after extreme ownership - would not make as much sense if you read it before.

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.

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.

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.

Awesome military stories ordinary business stories

Jocko and Leif are excellent storytellers. Because of it, for sure you will enjoy the book. However, I felt it is more like a military book and not a business book.
Each chapter has two parts: a military example and a business life example, but the military part is always way more detailed, better explained.
This book cannot say anything new after the Extreme Ownership. Actually, you can summarize it in one sentence: Don't go extreme. But it was explained in the previous book too.

An Unnecessary Addition

It is an Unnecessary addition to the first book, nothing inherently wrong with this book, other than it was just an unnecessary companion to the first book. I would skip this one and reread the first book if I were you.

Decent

Fiction and poems were very basic. Messages about leadership were good, with an overall message of "find the balance in all aspects". I thought this would be more important or better than Extreme Ownership but now I'm not so sure.

Just ok

If you've read the 1st book be prepared to hear some of the exact same content. I was a little disappointed to listen to recycled content and felt like the random sound bites plugged into some of the illustrations cheapened the book. It left me feeling like there was more emphasis on creating drama than new usable content.

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.
