The greatest truth life teaches us all is that nobody succeeds alone. Every great individual in history has required a comprehensive commitment toward living a team oriented-lifestyle in order to achieve elite levels of success. Not many teams are greater than the SEAL Teams. The Brotherhood thrives on this elite standard of performance. Forged on the battlefields and in blood, listen as David helps his audiences redefine their personal and professional concepts of what living the Team Life means to them. The Missions include: 1. Commitment 2. Training 3. Communication 4. Leadership. Additionally, in this powerful talk, David profiles four Navy SEAL Congressional Medal of Honor stories to help illustrate the critical importance of functioning as a team to achieve never before imagined levels of personal and professional success.
