How the Navy SEALs Train for Leadership Excellence

How the Navy SEALs Train for Leadership Excellence | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Almost every world-class, high-performance organization takes training and education seriously. But Navy SEALs go uncomfortably beyond. They’re obsessive and obsessed. They are arguably the best in the world at what they do. Their dedication to relentless training and intensive preparation, however, is utterly alien to the overwhelming majority of businesses and professional enterprises worldwide. That’s important, not because I think MBAs should be more like SEALS—I don’t—but because real-world excellence requires more than commitment to educational achievement.

As an educator, I fear world-class business schools and high-performance businesses overinvest in “education” and dramatically underinvest in “training.” Human capital champions in higher education and industry typically prize knowledge over skills. Crassly put, leaders and managers get knowledge and education while training and skills go to those who do the work. That business bias is both dangerous and counterproductive. The SEALS can’t afford it. “Under pressure,” according to SEAL lore, “you don’t rise to the occasion, you sink to the level of your training. That’s why we train so hard.” When I see just how difficult and challenging it is for so many smart and talented organizations to innovate and adapt under pressure, I see people who are overeducated and undertrained. That scares me.

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

While I totally believe there are elements of Seal training that can be applied to business, however the big difference is, that in business our lives are not directly and physically at risk so we tend to minimize the role. It boils down to attitude.

Seal Motto: "You rise to the level of your training "

John Michel's curator insight, Today, 8:24 AM

If your organization cares about innovation or transforming customer service or being data-driven, how do you lead by example? In Laszlo Bock’s otherwise superb Google-based book on performance analytics—Work Rules!—the phrase “lead by example” is nowhere to be found. That’s both a pity and opportunity missed because, as Webb stresses, leading by example is what truly empowers small teams and teamwork.

The New Rules of Work? They’re a Waste of Time in the Real World

The New Rules of Work? They’re a Waste of Time in the Real World | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
I’m usually a big fan of Fast Company articles, but one recently seemed like the biggest contrived piece of new-aged garbage, and I just had to share! The article has a great premise: …
Ron McIntyre's insight:

This is a counter point to a Fast Company article that was previously written about the new rules of work. Interesting but I don't agree with either article, they really are both extremes in the real workforce. For example, there will always be jobs where you must be there in person, but many can be done from anywhere. As with all of the points in these articles, there are exceptions and balance points in real life. Both should be read for insights that apply not as a map for implementation!

There are no surprises here, as far as I am concerned. The more sites that try to arbitrage a flight the higher the cost, everyone in the transaction wants to make money. It really boils down to the convenience factor. Is the convenience worth the $30/flight.

Are you prepared for the future? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

Our Global Leadership Forecast (GLF) is a truly global study of more than 13,000 business leaders and 1,500 HR executives. The GLF report is a fascinating study of leadership today and focuses on the experiences of leaders all around the world, and the implications.
It’s clear that, not only are leaders struggling with new skills such as using analytics, driving innovation, surviving in the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world and managing increasingly diverse teams, they are finding the fundamental requirements of leadership difficult.
These include delivering on the specific strategy of their CEOs, leading rather than managing, and effectively interacting with teams.

Time to Increase the ROT

Time to Increase the ROT | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Viewing training as an investment seems to be the exception rather than the rule. Given this and the fact that UK businesses alone are estimated to spend over £50 billion a year on training, it is no wonder that management is so ready to ditch it. It could not be otherwise. That is why the time has come to measure and increase the ROT.
Ron McIntyre's insight:

While I understand the idea of Return on Training, not sure I agree with the acronym of ROT, although it may have more resemblance to some training than people are willing to talk about. The idea of training is excellent but there needs to be an execution factor after the training. Too often training takes place but then never put to use, thereby wasting dollars.  Appreciate your bringing this out Bay. Have a great weekend.

The Power of Focus. The Start-Up Files #4

The Power of Focus.                                     The Start-Up Files #4 | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
The very best businesses usually grow up around a single idea. A mindset. Something to be revered. An elegant solution to a problem. The further most businesses get from the original idea, the worse they generally become.

But the temptation is always there. If we do this, we can get these clients over there too. More clients is better! More money is better! It's usually not too hard to talk ourselves into this sort of thing. 

I'm here to tell you - stop it. Stop trying to be the solution to everyone's problem.
