How Much Of Your Life Do You Own?  

Leadership isn't only about impacting those people immediately in front of you, but also about setting the stage for your entire environment to thrive, no matter your position or title.

How much of what you're involved in do you own? We need to do as much as we can to ensure that those working toward our mission are as prepared as possible to meet all challenges and achieve all goals. That’s the basis for this month’s Monthly Check-In on Ownership.

Keeping that lesson on Ownership in mind, this month's Coach It Out's In The Books podcast covers the book Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. The title of the book refers to the importance of a leader's willingness, ability, and need to truly be responsible for everything in their operation. It may sound like common sense, but there's a deeper responsibility therein.

Extreme Ownership covers the need for a leader to be responsible for all areas of their environment.

Too often, leaders feel they are only truly responsible and accountable for what is immediately front of them -- for instance, the people whom they directly supervise. But it is a leader who is supposed to make sure everyone in an organization or group is as successful as possible, no matter how far they are from that leader.

How do you develop your environment through extreme ownership?

Do You Agree?
"Political behavior allows differences to be shared and methods to be employed in strategy execution that go beyond the rules and norms of the organisation. Thus, it's important for leaders to understand the forms it can take and how they can harness it."

In general, how do you view politics in your organization or group?

How should a leader take ownership in an environment which may be so political?

"Most of what leading is is setting a foundation. Nothing can be built skyward without some working semblance of a strong foundation off of which to work . ( Read More )

A leader can't be in multiple places at the same time, overseeing the innumerable operations of a mission. But, it is paramount that a leader make sure to set a foundation of belief, attitude, information, and commitment that permeates the organization.

The leader has to set the stage for things to happen. And whatever happens in an organization, whether good or bad, is a result of the leader's style, foresight, and ability. The organization is what the leader encourages, builds, develops, and tolerates. A leader owns the result. A leader owns everything.
