Great Leadership With Jacob Morgan

In today’s leadership spark, Lt. Colonel Dan Rooney discusses vulnerability and its role within high-functioning teams, such as fighter pilots and special operators. He emphasizes the importance of trust and openness, where vulnerability is embraced to improve performance and learn from mistakes. 

Dan shares personal experiences, including a near-fatal mistake during a flight and the financial struggles he faced while building a golf course. He highlights the significance of overcoming challenges and finding intentionality in daily actions, even during difficult times. The advice he gives to leaders is to create environments where failure is accepted and to focus on working hard and being nice as a simple yet effective leadership approach.

Dan Rooney is one of the 100+ CEOs I interviewed for my new book, Leading With Vulnerability, which is coming out in October. Check it out here and pre-order your copy now.
