Episode 43: Navy SEAL Jason Redman shares how he overcame all odds despite the ambush that nearly cost him everything.

Retired Navy SEAL Lieutenant Jason Redman is a man forged in the crucible of combat. With a remarkable 21-year tenure, Jason served 11 years as an enlisted SEAL and another 10 as a SEAL officer leading teams through Iraq and Afghanistan. Having weathered failures early in his career that nearly resulted in his expulsion from the SEAL teams, Jason experienced redemption and returned to lead teams through intense combat operations. However, his path took a treacherous turn during an enemy ambush where he was shot eight times, including a devastating round to the face that brought him to the precipice of death. Yet, it is precisely this ordeal that imbues Jason's teachings with unmatched authenticity. As Jason adamantly declares, "These are not SEAL lessons, these are human lessons!" As the New York Times bestselling author of "The Trident: The Forging and Reforging of a Navy SEAL Leader," he delves into the depths of leadership, failure, redemption, and the aftermath of a wartime enemy ambush, offering a profound account of overcoming all odds. Today, Jason leverages his invaluable experiences as a speaker, coach, author, and trainer, assisting individuals, teams, and organizations in defining and implementing enduring change, even in the face of adversity. Jason's profound impact extends beyond the speaking circuit; he has appeared on national news networks, been featured on History channel's "Navy SEALs: America's Secret Warriors", played the lead role in the film "The Perfect Day", and assumed a supporting character on "Hawaii 5-0." As a leader, Jason teaches individuals how setbacks become stepping stones and crises become catalysts for triumph. From the battlefield to the boardroom, Jason Redman has become a beacon of resilience, inspiring all to embrace a new perspective; one that recognizes no bad days, only good days, and great days.
