Former Navy SEAL CO Mike Hayes on Living a Life of Excellence, Agility, & Meaning

Mike Hayes has lived a lifetime of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. He has been held at gunpoint and threatened with execution. He’s jumped out of a building rigged to explode, helped amputate a teammate’s leg, and made countless split-second life-and-death decisions. Outside of the SEALs, he’s run meetings in the White House Situation Room, negotiated international arms treaties, and developed high- impact corporate strategies.

Over his many years of leadership, he has always strived to be better, to contribute more, and to put others first. That’s what makes him an effective leader, and it’s the quality that he’s identified in all of the great leaders he’s encountered. That continual striving to lift those around him has filled Mike’s life with meaning and purpose, has made him secure in the knowledge that he brings his best to everything he does, and has made him someone others can rely on.

Mike Hayes recounts dramatic stories and offers battle- and boardroom-tested advice that will motivate readers to do work of value, live lives of purpose, and stretch themselves to reach their highest potential.

Support for military families:

Mike Hayes founded The 1162 Foundation—an organization named after the date President Kennedy commissioned the SEALs—in order to help families in the special operations community who have lost loved ones. Mike Hayes has personally pledged to donate a minimum of $250,000 from the book’s royalties to the foundation to help Gold Star families; already several mortgages have been paid off for Gold Star widows.
