Publisher's Summary

Navy Ace pilot and TOPGUN instructor Bill Driscoll demonstrates how his own life-or-death aerial dogfights - and the preparation for them - can help guide high-risk corporate decisions. Interviews with over 200 senior executives and 26 Ace pilots, as well as strategies from Driscoll's own highly successful second career in commercial real estate, reinforce the consistent patterns underlying exceptional performance under pressure.

Benefits:

  • Make tough, split-second decisions under the pressure of the fast-paced, competitive battleground of global enterprise
  • Cope with ever-changing business conditions, such as company downsizing, management changes, dwindling resources, and tight deadlines
  • Boost personal, team, and organizational performance

Incredible Leadership Lessons

As the son of a Navy Chief Petty Officer, I found this book to be incredibly relational. The stories of Navy leadership are similar to the stories that guided my life. As a successful healthcare executive, the lessons in this book are timeless and apply succinctly to the daily challenges I face as a leader in a highly matrixed and complex organization.

I am so glad that I bought this book and will recommend it to my friends and colleagues.

Attaboy Bill, Excellent Read / Listen

As a disciple of Admiral McRaven's, Make Your Bed and Sea Stories, and Jocko Willink and Leif Babin's, Extreme Ownership and The Dichotomy of Leadership. Bill's Peak Business Performance Under Pressure, is a must read/listen.
and should be added to your reading list if you appreciate common sense management.

An inspiring, well-written book.

Bill you're bed is square

If any comment, I'd have put the reasons for the book at the start and perhaps a little more info about battle and flight planning in a business context. Just a thought..

I hope you expand on this young Bill.
You're on the curve,
