About this episode:

“Planning is everything. The plan is nothing” Dwight D Eisenhower

Great teams combine creativity (art) and rigorous process (science) to build plans to achieve their mission.  Great leaders know how to employ the separate elements of that plan, to make it as easy as possible for their team to approach and hit their targets, through the challenges of mission execution.

In this episode, we cover:

  • The art and science of leadership.
  • The impact of Right versus left brain thinking in the planning process.
  • How a clear understanding of the target and ‘mission command’ empowers a team.
  • The importance of making the final approach to target as simple as possible.
  • The leader’s role in incorporating the team in the planning process.
  • Why contingency planning is the difference between good and great.
