Rules of Engagement
Richard Marcinko burst on the scene with his phenomenal #1 New York TImes bestselling autobiography, which chronicled the astounding adventures of his thirty controversial years as a Navy commando and creator of the legendary SEAL TEAM SIX. Three blockbuster Rogue Warrior novels later, Marcinko shared his methods in Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior, revealing the true nature of dynamic, gutsy, frontline leadership.Blasting other self-help guides out of the water, the New York Times business bestseller shows how anyone can apply the skills Marcinko has honed throughout his remarkable career to the challenges of business and everyday life.
Now comes The Rogue Warrior's Strategy For Success, in which Marcinko employs his trademark no-holds-barred style and hard-earned know-how to spell out a surefire system for winning in any arena. Tough-talking, straightforward, and comprehensive, The Rogue Warrior's Strategy For Success leads you -- and thereby your team -- on a strategic mission. Your goal: accomplishment and victory. Among the points and principles you'll gather as a warrior in business:
Know what drives you.
Socrates had it right: know thyself. If what you set out ot accomplish is inconsistent with your values, you're not going to be able to stay focused and committed -- particularly when the going gets tough -- just when you need those qualities most. And if you're in a position of leadership, it's crucial that you understand the drives, motives, and values of each member of your team.
Don't get self-satisfied.
It's an adage that bears repetition: NEVER let success go to your head -- or it will eventually wind up at the other end of your anatomy. THINK STRATEGICALLY. A sound and aggressive strategic plan will support your tactical attack on any problem, and keep you humbly successful.
Be ready to risk -- again and again and again.
A sure cure for complacency is not fearing innovation. Stand ready to go to the war of life -- and business -- repeatedly. Don't wait for life, or your competition, to define your character for you: doing it yourself is the only way! Reinventing your life, and the life of your organization, is one of the best cures and preventive techniques for complacency, boredom, and lack of productivity.
MArcinko speaks with enormous authority on the subject of success. With rightful scorn for those who attempt to lead from "on high," he puts the how-tos of winning on the line with solid, accessible concepts -- "Rules of Engagement" you can incorporate into your game plan as soon as you read them. The Rogue Warrior's Strategy For Success, as outrageous, entertaining, and right-on-target as the man himself, provides the no-nonsense principles and strategies that have made Marcinko -- the warrior and the businessman -- extraordinarily successful.From Library Journal:
Former Navy SEAL commander Marcinko has already given us his leadership secrets (Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior: A Commando's Guide to Success, Pocket Bks., 1996). Now, he gives us the principles needed to succeed in any given endeavor. His principles are common sense: be focused, train hard, be willing to risk, never be complacent, and more. Each of the principles is illustrated by an example from life, business, or the military. An anonymous woman with a pleasant voice introduces each section, with the author reading most of the text. Marcinko reads clearly and with enthusiasm, and the contrast in voices is enjoyable. A practical, no-nonsense work, this should be in all popular collections.?Michael T.
