Leadership Lessons From a SEAL
Always Make "Stretch Goals"
"I'm a big believer in stretch goals—you have to push yourself way outside your comfort zone," says former Navy SEAL and Leadership Under Fire instructor Rob Roy. "If a person does 50 push-ups, we know he can do more." When benchmarking for success at your company, don't be afraid to set high goals for your employees. You're not looking to drive them nuts—but you'll quickly find out who the true performers are.
