Hear David Koss's lessons from his thirty-year career in the US Navy and how he applies them in the corporate world.

Whether a leader is guiding an organization through a digital transformation or keeping a team of Blue Angel pilots in a precise formation for a 53-minute flight, one necessary leadership skill can make all the difference both in a military or corporate scenario: building trust is paramount to a team’s success. 

In fact, organizations that build high-trust levels are more productive, outperforming low-trust organizations by 186%, according to the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). 

So what can leaders do to set a strong foundation to build high-performing, cohesive teams? 

In this episode of Masters of Digital Transformation, host Caleb Masters is joined by David Koss, Leadership and Values Coach at o9 Solutions, to discuss:

  • The leadership lessons David has learned from his 30-year career in the United States Navy and how he applies them in his role in the corporate world. 
  • Why it’s important to educate teams on why changes are necessary in order to gain their buy-in. 
  • How to lead teams through change.
  • Why leadership teams need to focus on developing their organization’s core values.
