"No Yelling's laser sharp focus on the essential elements of true leadership is brilliant! It will definitely launch your leadership skills to new peaks." —Rick Searfoss, retired U.S. Air Force astronaut and space shuttle commander

Drawing upon real-life experiences from those on active duty as well as those now in the civilian sector, this book illustrates how to emulate the leadership principles that are the hallmark of the U.S. Marine Corps. Based on findings gleaned from more than 100 interviews, this guide presents the key factors that are at the heart of the marine's approach along with side-by-side comparisons of their application in military and civilian settings. A series of questions is provided at the end of each chapter to facilitate group discussion on topics ranging from integrity and setting the example to the commander’s intent and rehearsals and critiques prompting a personal analysis that leads the individual to review the process and develop their own methods for implementation. Questions from these sections also serve as the basis for a year-long curriculum for leadership development.
