Get out of the way A-Hole!

In episode 6 we discuss a couple of road rage incidents that escalated to the point someone got hurt or killed, and one that was handled pretty well by a guy in Indiana. These stories are important because most of us tend to feel pretty tough behind the wheel of our car. The distance and physical barrier that our cars put between us and other drivers make us feel like we aren’t in much danger, but that can be a false sense of security. We also touch a little bit on what de-escalation techniques *should* look like, a concept called situational leadership, and how MRAPs (big armored trucks) hurt our counter-insurgency efforts overseas (much like in the case of road rage-think about the ways physical barriers and distance dehumanize our troops).

“Tactical” Adulting: The Unclassified Secrets to Success

Sometimes the skills you need to be a professional have less to do with your actual job and more to do with, well, everything else. Put money away for retirement. Have a backup plan. Have a healthy marriage and life at home. Get a hobby. Taking care of your own wellness and the people around you are what help you be a high-performer at work. All the knife hands and shooting drills in the world won’t help you be successful if you don’t show up to work in a state of mind to focus on all the cool stuff.
