Publisher's Summary

Success has a strategy and failure is not an accident.

Having served in the SAS for more than 20 years, Floyd Woodrow MBE DCM has achieved at the very highest levels. Inspiring his men in the most demanding of situations, he drove his team to success, ultimately being awarded the UK's second-highest award for gallantry, the Distinguished Conduct Medal.

The Warrior, The Strategist and You uses Floyd's deeply practical, innovative and highly sought-after teachings to show how each of us can unlock both the Warrior and the Strategist within. Through invaluable lessons drawing on Floyd's own experience, you will learn to harness your discipline and ability to fight for what you believe (the Warrior) while developing the analytical mindset to plan, deliver and communicate the important milestones in line with your objectives (the Strategist). 

This is a philosophy for business, for battle, for sport - and for everyone who wants to realise their potential and be the very best that they can be. Floyd will help you to understand your motivations and overcome your fears, to clearly plan your goals, and to accomplish that plan boldly and successfully, mentally overcoming life's greatest obstacles.

Great Read!

This was a great read that I would highly recommend. Floyd’s personal stories and leadership experiences provide great lessons and insights to help illustrate the power of his compass framework. I love how the compass framework can be applied in any setting: personal, professional, business, sport, and more. Would highly recommend for business professionals, leaders or really anyone looking to personally improve themselves.

Superb

I enjoy reading books as an endeavour to learn more about myself and apply any key takeaways.

I’d encourage any person to read this; some people may be put off by the notion of “of course he has his affairs in order, he was in the SAS” but honestly that plays a small part in what this book offers. The exercises are apt and it definitely made me look introspectively as to where I can employ different tactics to move towards a “True North Star”.

10/10, will read again soon.
