089: A Navy SEALs Lessons in Teamwork with Chris Sajnog

Teamwork is something we hear a lot about but it’s not something that we typically delve into too much because we’re all expected to know what it means to be a team player.

Teamwork is the fastest way to growth and success in just about any endeavor in life and my guest today, retired Navy SEAL Chris Sajnog, is here to tell us how Navy SEALs operate as a team, how to reach others in a constructive manner, how to recognize strengths in others, and how to help your team thrive.

“All we’ve done in the SEAL Teams is harnassed the power of working as a team.” Tweet That
