Leadership Lessons with Jason Redman: Overcoming Adversity & Building Trust
When retired Navy Seal Jason Redman’s ego and arrogance leads to a mission failure, he refuses to give up and instead chooses to use his misfortune to become a better leader and help others do the same – learning to overcome adversity and build a legacy with an “overcome” mindset.
“Leaders are forged during hard times. We don’t make leaders in easy times. So if you can, an overcome mindset would say, well, this sucks. I don’t really want to go through this, but if I embrace it, if I drive through it, if I navigate my way through these problems, I’m going to become better.”
Retired Navy Seal Jason Redman is a renowned speaker and content creator who helps people take action in their lives, move past adversity, and drive through sticking points. He is passionate about helping people develop an “overcome mindset” to face any challenge.
Jason Redman had a successful career in the Navy SEALs, but was brought low by a mistake made in Afghanistan in 2005. Rather than wallowing in self-pity, he chose to take action and build back his trust, respect, and credibility. After being shot eight times in Iraq in 2007, he adopted an ‘overcome mindset’, choosing to use his hardships and failures to become a better leader and help others. He now uses his experiences to motivate and inspire people to move past adversity and take action to find success in their lives.
