Property Management Mastermind Show

#93 Flynn Cochran - Marquee Speaker at PMMCON 2020

Feb 10, 2020 by Brad Larsen

If you could learn leadership from a Navy SEAL, would you? Flynn Cochran is a former Navy SEAL and the Chief Strategy Officer for Echelon Front, a leadership consulting firm where he is a leadership instructor. Flynn uses the consulting models from the books Extreme Ownership and Dichotomy of Leadership by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin to teach individuals and businesses the principles of leadership and how to use them change cultures and lives.

Flynn shares about his SEAL training and military career, why he left to go to business school, and what he learned there that has helped him advance in his career. Flynn also chats about some of the clients that the consulting firm has helped using these leadership principles. Flynn shares how these leadership principles are available for anyone, not just business owners, and some lightbulb moments he has shared with civilians he has taught.

Flynn is the Marque speaker at the Property Management Mastermind Conference and is also doing a three-hour add on seminar that you won’t want to miss. He speaks about what he plans to teach, who his target audience is, and why attending both of his sessions will be beneficial. There will be hands-on lessons as well and discussions on decentralized command because he believes everyone needs to know their role but be prepared to step in and help anyone on the chain of command.

Listen as Flynn shares some of the topics he will touch on during the Property Management Mastermind Conference next month in Las Vegas. If you are planning on going, great, you just got a good overview of her presentation, if you haven’t bought your ticket yet, don’t hesitate they are getting scarce. You don’t want to miss the information that will blow your mind at the conference.
