Lessons From A Navy Seal: What Our CTO Learned From Jocko Willink

July 21, 2017 Dave Gerhardt

On this episode of Seeking Wisdom, we’re joined by Drift co-founder and CTO Elias Torres.

Elias just got back from two days with Jocko Willink — the same Jocko who was the subject of episode #72 Leadership Lessons From A Navy Seal.

Jocko was commander of SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser during the Battle of Ramadi, and now runs Echelon Front — an organization that trains businesses and leaders based on the strategies used by U.S. Navy SEAL Teams.

We talk about everything from early morning workouts to hiring, onboarding, training, and building a culture of ownership.

Five stars only.
