Ep. 104: (Part 1) Stories I WISH would have made it into Black Hawk Down- Matt Eversmann

This is the first in a 5-part series of stories I WISH would have made it into the book and movie Black Hawk Down. Matt Eversmann is a 20-year Army veteran. He and I served together in the streets of Somalia on October 3, 1993 with the Ranger Regiment, and his story is one of courageous leadership when he was suddenly and unexpectedly put in charge.

Today, Matt is a New York Times bestselling co-author and teaches organizations how to adapt to rapid change, highlighting the importance of leadership, resilience, responsibility, and courage.

You’ll hear:

  • Why he was suddenly thrust into leadership in Somalia and how the Army prepares warriors for situations like that
  • What I observed from him on the battlefield that impressed me so much
  • A discussion about the harsh realities of warfare that most people don’t understand
  • 2 other parts of Matt’s career that I’ve observed and highly respect
  • What his books are about and why he wrote them
