Summary

Robert Kiyosaki's new audiobook 8 Lessons in Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs draws from his years at the Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point and his service in the United Sates Marine Corps. With compelling stories and examples and an engaging way of comparing and contrasting two very different cultures and value systems, Robert shares the challenges he faced in transitioning to civilian life: where chain of command and team-over-self - once so black and white - were muddy and distorted. "Permission to speak freely, sir?" Count on it. This is Robert Kiyosaki - and he does just that, in the forthright and no-nonsense style that listeners have come to expect and appreciate.

From Robert's perspective, military training shapes lives and supports entrepreneurship. The training, discipline, and leadership skills taught in the military can be leveraged for huge success in the civilian world of business.

Highlights of 8 Lessons in Military Leadership for Entrepreneurs include sections on Mission and Team, Discipline, Respect, Authority, Speed, the Power of Connectivity, Leaders as Teachers, and Sales and Leadership.

A great advert for what the military gives a person

Positives: military leadership is often thought to be totally different I civilian leadership due to the nature of the military (questioning seemingly not being allowed, having subordinates that must follow orders etc) but this book really draws it loads of interesting relevant parallels that cross the divide.

Negatives: Slightly hard to discern the 8 lessons as part of the audio version and there is a lot of cross over with his other books.

Military lessons of leadership

This book has open up my understanding why seasoned people in the military make great leaders. They work at making the team a perfect unit. In the civil world, we work at making the product perfect.

Brilliant

by far the best book on audible. This book really hit home as veteran. I know have been able to see things from my military experience with new light. I am sure this will be the audible book I listen to more than once. The book was a little difficult to handle with the performance but after the first chapter I was able to get past the tone and voice and really get the guts of what was being said.

Is it really about military leadership?

I see a lot of references to the military, but there’s too much self-promotion and overgeneralization than practical insights
