He is the co-founder of Echelon Front, where he is a leadership instructor, speaker, and executive coach. Jocko has spent twenty years in the U.S. Navy Seal Teams, starting as an enlisted SEAL and rising through the ranks to become a SEAL officer. As Commander of SEAL Team 3's Task Unit "Bruiser" during the Battle of Ramadi, he orchestrated SEAL operations that helped the ready-first brigade of the U.S. Army's first armored division to bring stability to the violent war-torn city. Task Unit "Bruiser" became the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraqi war. Jocko returned from Iraq to serve as an officer in charge of training for all West Coast SEAL teams. There, he spearheaded the development of leadership training and personally instructed and mentored the next generation of SEAL leaders who have continued to perform with great success on the battlefield. During his career, Jocko Willink was awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, and numerous other personal and unit awards.

He's going to talk about how even though you may not know the right course of action for your kids, you shouldn't force decisions on them. Finally, Jocko says you must explain to your kids the why behind everything you ask of them.
