25: Interview with Jocko Willink and Leif Babin, Authors of the Dichotomy of Leadership and Extreme Ownership
Sep 29th, 2018
The Northern Myths Podcast is honoured to welcome Jocko Willink and Leif Babin onto the podcast to discuss their new book, the Dichotomy of Leadership. Jocko and Leif are former Navy SEALs and the authors of New York Times #1 Bestseller Extreme Ownership. Jocko and Leif are major influences on Luke and Dan personally and were a significant factor in the development of the Northern Myths Podcast. Jocko and Leif are true heroes and warriors and have discovered valuable lessons about how to live through their experiences. The lessons we find in the myths we cover on the Northern Myths Podcast fit very well with what Jocko and Leif talk about in their books and the popular Jocko Podcast.
