The Everyday Leader
14 Marine Corps Traits to Unlock Your Leadership DNA
Why did we write this book?
Can the principles of military leadership translate successfully to the business world? Hema and Michael Crockett believe so, and in their book, The Everyday Leader: 14 Marine Corps Traits to Unlock Your Leadership DNA, they draw on their own experiences from within the Marine Corps as well as in business to demonstrate how the values, vision and discipline of the U.S. military can be effectively applied in a corporate environment.
The Everyday Leader also covers how to make military leadership principles tangible and how to discover, define and develop your leadership traits. Readers will view the impact of authentic military leadership through candid and engaging anecdotes shared by the authors. These stories illustrate practical applications of those qualities as well as demonstrate potential pitfalls when misunderstood or applied incorrectly. It’s about using the information, insights and tools provided by the authors to allow you to unlock your “leadership DNA.”
What is this book about?
The Everyday Leader breaks down the 14 Marine Corps Leadership Traits, uses actual stories from real military leaders to bring these traits to life before defining and connecting them back to how they apply in the business world and to the everyday leader.
This book also takes readers behind the curtain of the US Marine Corps and into the lives of the leaders who help protect their freedom every single day. Men and women who lead through war and times of peace, whose leadership traits and principles are taught from the moment they enter bootcamp, and whose values they carry long after they leave the military. These 14 leadership traits aren’t just concepts; these traits are meant to encourage leaders to establish their own leadership traits that convert to actions and actual strategies to lead confidently in the boardroom and in everyday life.
