Building Teams and Culture
Dave’s biggest challenge as a Naval Officer didn’t come in the cockpit of his F-14, made famous by the movie Top Gun, but rather as a leader of people. It was under the pressures of combat where he grasped how the right words at the right time inspire and not merely motivate people.
What’s more important in preparedness, skills or the latest gear? In my books I focus mostly on the personal and group skills you will need to survive a WROL/SHTF event.
