8 Lessons in Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs


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.
