As an Operative who served as a Country Chief for a Special Unit within the CIA, Nic witnessed not only the epidemic of child trafficking within illicit markets but also the unrealized opportunity to apply his understanding and training to influence this global crisis. When Nic began to work with experts to better understand the problem in the United States he found it impossible to turn a blind eye. As a result, DeliverFund was officially established as a 501c3 in October 2014 as a counter-human trafficking organization, focused on ending sex slavery in the United States. Nic spent 11 years in US Special Operations as an Air Force Pararescueman prior to being recruited to the Central Intelligence Agency. Due to his highly specialized training and experience in both special and intelligence operations, Nic has a firm understanding of these illicit, illegal markets and has the highest levels of training to effectively combat them.

He is a former Recon Marine and retired US Navy SEAL officer with twenty years of experience in Special Operations, including the elite Joint Special Operations Command.George Randle is a Strategic Advisor to EF Overwatch, former US Army officer, and Vice President of Global Talent Acquisition at Forcepoint, a human-centric cybersecurity company. George has more than two decades of experience in talent acquisition at Fortune 100 and Fortune 1000 firms.About The Talent War:Foreword written by New York Times bestselling author and retired Navy SEAL Jocko Willink.A must-read for any business leader looking to build elite teams and win on talent.Talent is the foundation of every success story from Silicon Valley to Wall Street to Main Street, and even on the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan. It's the hidden asset that never shows up on the balance sheet, despite being the driver for a company's true value. And now, in this hypercompetitive business environment, the war for talent has never been more important, or more complex. Of eight hundred CEOs and six hundred C-suite executives polled in 2019, the overwhelming majority cited the ability to attract and retain top talent as their number one concern.For your organization to win, you need to attract and retain the best talent. But without the right strategy or mindset, you won't be able to do so--and you won't be able to compete. After all, your people, not your product or service, are your strongest competitive advantage.When it comes to winning on talent, no one does it better or more consistently than the US Special Operations community. Their success comes down to their people and a widely held foundational belief: Talent + Leadership = Victory.The Talent War explores how US Special Operations Forces assess, select, and develop their world-class talent. You'll learn how to adopt a talent mindset, the single greatest weapon you can possess in the war for talent. When your organization reflects this mindset, you will hire, train, and develop the right people, and put them in the best positions to make decisions that allow you to retake the advantage and win the war.Order The Talent War:https://thetalentwar.com/

Jason Van Camp is a bad ass.That makes some people uncomfortable. Mission accomplished.Jason founded Mission Six Zero, a Leadership Training Consultancy (and so much more) after a decorated military career. Jason is a Green Beret, THE Special Forces branch of US Special Operations (more on that in the podcast). Jason received three Bronze Stars, one with a V for Valor and is the author of Deliberate Discomfort, the template for any leader to develop an elite team and as a result, elite company. It's the best book on Leadership I've ever read, and the reason we are doing this podcast.I could stop there, that's enough. That's more than most civilians (like me) could ever hope to see or accomplish. But there is so much more.Jason is extremely humble, a trait I am learning most Special Operations veterans display at all times. I think it comes from years of intense training and the confidence to know you can handle any situation, with no need to prove it. Damn.Jason started a company right out of the military - with no business experience. Why? Because he wanted more, he wanted to help others...it's how Special Operations is wired - help the person next to you be better. Mission first, team second, teammate third. That's how great companies win.We talk about starting a business, leading others on the journey and the difference between silent and quiet professionals.I learned things about leading that would never have occurred to me, or others for that matter.Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.Jason's Eating Crow Moments:Understanding "Who am I?". Find out what you stand for, what you think about on your own time. Then build your mission around what it is you are passionate about and stand for.Trust but Verify. Extending trust before it is earned is unnerving. It's the first step in building a team. Then verify. Hold your team and yourself accountable.Key Takeaways for Leaders and Entrepreneurs:Mission: You must have a mission, your company must understand this mission. Alignment, purpose and direction.Six: Create and demonstrate a "Got your six" mentality. Let your team know you have their backs and build trust, loyalty, respect and commitment. You can't lead without these important attributes of a successful team.Zero: You need a baseline - a true north. This acts both as a compass but also the standard by which you measure all improvement.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/eating-crow.

As you know if you’ve been following along, I’m a big fan of mental toughness books—whether that’s coming from peak performers in the sports world or the Special Forces or other leadership roles.    See Notes on: How Champions Think, The Champion’s Mind, Winning the Inner Game of Tennis, Win Forever, Go Long!, Chasing Excellence, Coaching the Mental Game, 10-Minute Toughness, The Hoops Whisperer, Raise Your Game, The Art of the Fight, Win or Learn, Unbeatable Mind, Can’t Hurt Me, Discipline Equals Freedom, etc., etc. etc.   So…   When our Optimizers recommended I check out a book called It Takes What It Takes by Trevor Moawad, I immediately Amazon-ed it. And, when I got it on Saturday afternoon, I immediately started reading it (literally) and had it nearly read by the end of the weekend.   Trevor Moawad is a mental conditioning coach to elite performers. He is well known for being the mental coach to Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and has worked closely with prestigious NCAA football programs and coaches, the US Special Operations community, Major League Baseball, and the NBA.   This book is, as per the sub-title, all about “How to Think Neutrally and Gain Control of Your Life.” I loved it and, if you’re equally fired up by the mental-toughness-in-sports-and-life genre, I think you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.    Trevor’s ideas on “neutral thinking” (vs. negative or positive thinking) are genius. We’ll talk more about those soon.   But…    Today I want to chat about another one of his big distinctions.   Quick context.   At this stage, we’ve probably all heard about the whole progression from being “unconsciously incompetent” to “consciously incompetent” to “consciously competent” to “unconsciously competent.”   Basically: Most people say we want to go from being unconsciously incompetent (where you don’t know what you don’t know and therefore can’t address it) to consciously incompetent (where you know what you don’t know and can get to work on it) to consciously competent (where you know what you know but need to think about it to do it) to unconsciously competent (where you just do what you do without thinking about it).   Note: The highest level of development, they say, is being unconsciously competent.   Trevor tells us that he looks at it a little differently.    In his work with some of the world’s elite, he’s noticed that many peak performers don’t know HOW they perform at such a high level and that’s NOT a good thing if they want to SUSTAIN their world-class level of performance.   So…   He shuffles the order around a bit and tells us that what we REALLY want to do is go from unconsciously incompetent to consciously incompetent to unconsciously competent to CONSCIOUSLY COMPETENT.   He tells us that we’ve GOTTA KNOW what works for us and then DO THAT OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN.    THAT’s how the greatest become the greatest.   Now…   He doesn’t use the word “protocol” but, elite performers basically know their protocol and they work it. RUTHLESSLY.   That’s Today’s +1.   What do YOU do when you’re on?   Are you doing it?   Let’s make our Competence CONSCIOUS.   TODAY.   And repeat it.    Day after day after day after day x Infinity.
