Every leader must be prepared to take charge and make difficult, critical decisions for the good of the team and the mission. Something even more difficult to grasp is the fact that a good leader must also be a good follower. There is a leadership dichotomy here. It’s “Simple, Not Easy,” as writers Jocko Willink and Leif Babin put it in their best-selling first audiobook, Extreme Ownership.
The authors now describe the power of understanding the narrow line that leaders must walk, balancing between two seemingly opposing inclinations, in The Dichotomy of Leadership. A leader can most effectively lead, complete the task, and attain the goal of every leader and team: triumph, by knowing and comprehending this balance.
Willink and Babin show how the use of seemingly opposing principles – leading and following, focusing and detaching, being both aggressive and prudent – requires skill, awareness, understanding, and dexterity, all of which can be honed, using examples from the authors’ combat and training experience in the SEAL Teams and then showing how each lesson applies to business and life. Many of the topics outlined in Extreme Ownership have inherent dichotomies that are critical to their successful application and effectiveness. Anyone who wants to lead and win must listen to dichotomy.
