Ep. 1212: Kyle Buckett Interview with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

My guest today is Kyle Buckett, a retired US Navy SEAL. He led the advanced training for both junior and seasoned Navy SEALs, ranked number one of nine highly competitive Platoon Chiefs, and has been instrumental in the business development of numerous Navy SEAL-founded businesses. He runs Culture Force, a consulting company with Chris Mefford, and is also regularly involved in numerous charities supporting veterans from the special forces communities.

The topic is his co-authored book Leadership Is Overrated: How the Navy SEALs (and Successful Businesses) Create Self-Leading Teams That Win.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Teamwork and discipline in Navy SEALs
  • Cultural Adaptation
  • Afghanistan and Unconventional Warfare
  • Adapting to Leaderless Organizations
  • Gratitude and Perspective
  • Differences in work ethic across cultures
  • Importance of proactive maintenance and self-care
