8 | Master Chief Tuck Williams | Intriguing Life-Lessons From 30 Years of Navy Experience

Tuck joined the Navy in 1989 and recently retired after 30 years in service. Of these 30 years, 12 were spent at sea. He has served in far-flung places like Spain and Japan and has been decorated with numerous service medals. Throughout all of his career, one of the biggest lessons he learned was to lead by example.

How Do You Overcome Your Biggest Challenges to Lead by Example?

In this podcast, you will learn how to overcome some of the biggest challenges that are impeding your progress. Tuck shares some of the most important lessons learned in his three-decade-long service from steering clear of distractions to swift conflict resolution. Finding the right mentors also helped Tuck immensely along the way to lead by example.

When he was just 19, he was drafted to Japan. An unsure and slightly out-of-sorts, Tuck, fortunately, found a great mentor to lean on who helped him settle down. Be it the military or corporate America, the only constant changes. And if you run away from change, you are committing hara-kiri as eventually your enemy or your competition will end up having a leg up on you.

But, how can you drive for conflict resolution and prevent chaos in a dynamic environment? What can you do to show up a responsible, caring, and thoughtful leader?

Other topics discussed in today’s show include keeping your emotions in check at the workplace, tips for handling toxic people, and the importance of making good choices.
