8 Lessons in Leadership draws from Robert Kiyosaki’s years at the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and his service in the United States Marine Corps. With compelling stories and examples and an engaging way of comparing two very different cultures and value systems, Robert shares the challenges he faced in transitioning to civilian life where the chain of command and team-over-self were muddy and distorted. From Robert's perspective, military training shapes lives and supports entrepreneurship. The training, discipline, and leadership skills taught in the military can be leveraged for huge success in the civilian world of business.
Highlights of 8 Lessons in Leadership include sections on Mission and Team, Discipline, Respect, Authority, Speed, the Power of Connectivity, Leaders as Teachers, Sales and Leadership.
To get started, an individual must identify the players they need on their team, sell them into joining the team, and then build the culture for success that the entire team buys into.
This book includes perspectives from other proud veterans, including Lieutenant General (Ret.) Jack Bergman of the United States Marine Corps, as well as Robb LeCount who served as an Aviation Machinist Mate in the United States Navy.
