Release Date: 2015-07-28

This is my personal journey through one of the greatest warrior and leadership cultures of today, which ultimately provided me with defining leadership characteristics and the skills of a serious warrior. Nobody is born a great leader, they are made through hard work and determination. My first Indian name given to me by the medicine man when I was a child was Bobcat. As I grew and became a young man, I returned home from my first combat experience and was given my warrior's name, Evergreen Mountain. I am an American, first and foremost, but I am also a Pueblo and Yaqui Indian. I am a former member of the US Army's 18th Airborne Corps, 75th Ranger Regiment, and spent most of my career as an operational member of a Special Missions Unit under the United States Army Special Operations Command. These are some of my most important leadership lessons learned from the battlefield of the war on terror. It is my sincere hope that this book serves as a resource and a compass, providing direction and guidance for individuals seeking or in a leadership position.

The Trials and Tribulations of Becoming a SWAT Commander

Author: John A. Kolman
Publisher: Charles C Thomas Publisher
ISBN: 9780398075309
Release Date: 2004
Genre: Social Science

Captain Kolman (ret.), formerly of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, founder and first Director of the National Tactical Officers Association, and who authored one of the first SWAT textbooks in 1982, now brings forth a unique book that not only captures the substantive information required by new SWAT commanders but also its culture. Successful resolution of critical incidents is most often the result of basic concepts and principles implemented by knowledgeable, experienced and well-trained personnel under the direction of decisive leaders, but new SWAT commanders may not have benefited from coming through the ranks and SWAT pipeline and could be at a considerable disadvantage as they accept command. In a manner not previously used for SWAT education and training, Captain Kolman introduces the officer to substantive information, culture and a methodology to approach various missions. In doing so, the reader is led on an educational journey through a series of dreams that ultimately culminates in a fictitious SWAT Commander successfully resolving a high-risk incident. Each chapter builds on the previous one and allows the hypothetical characters passing through each chapter to evolve in knowledge, judgment and maturity. The book is a testimonial to the need for departments to provide or obtain contemporary, appropriate training for both command and operational personnel, so that working together they can effectively manage and resolve critical incidents with minimal risk to everyone involved. In addition to being a valuable asset to any SWAT school, including commanders, the seasoned operator will find this publication an entertaining and informative review.

Genre: Business & Economics

An updated edition of the blockbuster bestselling leadership book that took America and the world by storm, two U.S. Navy SEAL officers who led the most highly decorated special operations unit of the Iraq War demonstrate how to apply powerful leadership principles from the battlefield to business and life. Sent to the most violent battlefield in Iraq, Jocko Willink and Leif Babin’s SEAL task unit faced a seemingly impossible mission: help U.S. forces secure Ramadi, a city deemed “all but lost.” In gripping firsthand accounts of heroism, tragic loss, and hard-won victories in SEAL Team Three’s Task Unit Bruiser, they learned that leadership—at every level—is the most important factor in whether a team succeeds or fails. Willink and Babin returned home from deployment and instituted SEAL leadership training that helped forge the next generation of SEAL leaders. After departing the SEAL Teams, they launched Echelon Front, a company that teaches these same leadership principles to businesses and organizations. From promising startups to Fortune 500 companies, Babin and Willink have helped scores of clients across a broad range of industries build their own high-performance teams and dominate their battlefields. Now, detailing the mind-set and principles that enable SEAL units to accomplish the most difficult missions in combat, Extreme Ownership shows how to apply them to any team, family or organization. Each chapter focuses on a specific topic such as Cover and Move, Decentralized Command, and Leading Up the Chain, explaining what they are, why they are important, and how to implement them in any leadership environment. A compelling narrative with powerful instruction and direct application, Extreme Ownership revolutionizes business management and challenges leaders everywhere to fulfill their ultimate purpose: lead and win.

Swat Operations and Critical Incidents

Author: Stuart A. Meyers
Publisher: Operational Tactics
ISBN: 097294091X
Release Date: 2014-04-01
Genre: Political Science

An effective law enforcement response to critical incidents involving armed suspects can determine whether someone lives or dies. While law enforcement agencies train their personnel in the management of critical incidents, detailed studies regarding the creation of organizational conditions conducive to achieving desired outcomes are extremely limited. Drawing on personal experience and research, this book answers to the following questions: What organizational conditions impact the success or failure of global high-risk tactical operations and critical incidents? How can organizational conditions be developed to increase the likelihood of successful outcomes on these types of situations? This book analyzes six high-risk tactical operations: three successful and three unsuccessful missions. The case studies include incidents in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., Eureka, California, Manila, Philippines, Las Vegas, Nevada, Mauldin, South Carolina, and Silver Spring, Maryland. SWAT team deployment on high-risk operations is fundamentally a U.S. police concept that has been incorporated into foreign law enforcement agencies. Cultural differences can affect the implementation of pre-incident organizational conditions in foreign settings. Analysis of the U.A.E. and Philippines case studies include detailed discussions on how differing cultural practices and beliefs relate to organizational conditions. A qualitative analysis using a case study approach is conducted with a ?critical incident? as the main unit of analysis. Each incident is categorized into incident and pre-incident organizational conditions. Incident organizational conditions are conditions that are present on the day of a specific operation. They are categorized into the following areas: team structure and personnel assignments, individual behaviors, and equipment. Pre-incident conditions are examined beginning with the history of each SWAT team, and then continue with the team?s selection process, group development: command and team structure, frequency and type of training, and prescribed critical incident operational procedures. The results of this study identify the inextricable link between: leader skills, team performance, suspect actions, and organizational conditions. Well-defined organizational conditions prepare team members for a wide variety of missions, but also inculcate flexibility to adjust to ever-changing circumstances, thereby increasing a tactical team?s ability to achieve successful results.
