Living With A SEAL feat. Carmen Ekdahl

In the final episode of Season 1, Nitya Shekar and Alyssa Dickman are joined by special guest Carmen Ekdahl of Cop Coach and the non-profit Transformational Leadership Collaborative to discuss Living With a Seal by Jesse Itzler. 

Jesse Itzler invited a Navy SEAL to live with him for a month and put him through extreme fitness training. Living With a SEAL is that story.

Special guest Carmen Ekdahl, coach to police officers and other first responders, joins Alyssa and Nitya for a discussion about leadership in the context of daily threats, the power of extreme training to push even the toughest folks past their comfort zones, and how everyone can benefit from being a little (or a lot!) less risk averse. 

Listen in if you are interested in how far beyond your comfort zones you might be able to go.
