It was both an honor and a privilege to have Brent Gleeson on the show. Brent is a Navy SEAL combat veteran with multiple tours to Iraq and Africa and other war torn areas. Upon leaving SEAL Team 5, Brent turned his discipline and battlefield lessons to the world of business and has become an accomplished entrepreneur, author, and acclaimed speaker on topics ranging from leadership and building high performance teams to culture and organizational transformation. You can learn more about his leadership philosophies in his weekly columns on inc.com and forbes.com, which are awesome, by the way. I highly recommend you check those out.
He also starred in several reality TV shows, including NBC’s Stars Earn Stripes where he and Chris Kyle of American Sniper, great book by the way, along with other Special Operations professionals were paired with celebrities to compete and raise money for charities like the Wounded Warriors Project. He is also the author of Taking Point: a Navy SEAL’s 10 Fail Safe Principals for Leading Through Change, which will be published by Simon and Schuster on February 20, 2018.
The conversation that we had was fantastic. We spoke about peak performance, peak performance culture, peak performance mindset and what it takes to develop a mindset of peak performance and how you can translate that into your sales and your negotiation life.
