My friend and flight school roommate, Mike Manazir, was a real-life Admiral and Top Gun grad. As many of you may know, that is what pilots are called who complete the Navy Fighter Weapons School, now known as the Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program.
I love seeing my fellow Navy alums share their knowledge of leadership out in the world, as this was a top skill we come away with from our Navy experience. Mike is celebrating the launch of his book, Learn How to Lead to Win, which is offered on Amazon in paperback, hard cover, ebook and an audio version.
I love how he puts his own experience into practical terms for anyone: “You may not be screaming off the catapult in the cockpit of a Tomcat launching from an aircraft carrier — but 33 powerful stories and leadership lessons will have you strapping in tightly or holding onto the ejection seat lever for dear life. Learn How to Lead to Win will help you crush barriers to your success. Be as bold as a Top Gun fighter pilot, as decisive as the commander of a carrier in a typhoon. Have the courage to push to the edge of the leadership envelope and be an even better leader than you are today.”
Mike wrote this book for leaders who want to succeed in life. Winning in life, he says, is to be successful — in marriage, family, career, business and community — all while forming deeper relationships. That sounds like some good reading to me!
P.S. If you go to his website, you can get the eBook for just $0.99 for a limited time!
