I don’t know about you but I have spent many nights staying up contemplating the job I’m doing as my children’s father. I’m constantly wondering if I’m doing the right thing- if I’m leading when I need to, allowing them to lead when it’s best, and teaching them the lessons they’ll need to be successful.
My guest today, retired Navy SEAL, Eric Davis, helps me answer those questions and many more as he talks about his new book, Raising Men.
“It’s so important that you as a father are living the kind of life you want your kids to live.” — Eric Davis
Eric Davis served our country as a U.S. Navy SEAL and decorated veteran of the Global War on Terror. Eric has been recognized as one of the premier sniper instructors in the U.S. military and has served as a Master Training Specialist at the SEAL sniper school in Coronado, CA. In fact, he trained both Chris Kyle and Marcus Luttrell as snipers.
He is an expert of technical and physical surveillance and was part of an elite group hand-selected to perform intelligence collection in denied areas around the world.
Eric has spent years developing, writing and executing curriculum for the SEAL Teams. By leveraging his expertise in the development of systems, structures, processes and practices Eric was instrumental in significantly reducing the failure rate, of Naval Special Warfare’s internationally recognized Sniper course.
Since departing from the SEAL teams, Eric has worked in corporate performance, sales and leadership training bringing an unprecedented amount of innovation, efficiency and structure to the domain of business and personal performance.
Eric is also the author of “Raising Men: Lessons Navy SEALs learned from their training and taught to their sons” which he is here to talk with us about today.
