Resilience, Teamwork, and Confidence: Life Skills from a Navy SEAL and a Professional Golfer
What do Navy SEALs and professional golfers have in common? They perform at the highest levels under stress and uncertainty. Join us for an IOE Lunch and Learn discussion with Master Chief Terry Houin, a 26-year Navy SEAL veteran, and Paul Stankowski, a 24-year PGA Tour veteran, to hear about their approach to mental preparation and how to develop grit and focus that will help you succeed in school, relationships and your career. Mike O’Connell, IOE alum and Chair of the IOE Advisory Board Committee on Education and Professional Development, will moderate the discussion.
Master Chief Terry Houin is a 26-year Navy SEAL Veteran who spent the majority of his career at the Naval Special Warfare Development Group where he conducted over a dozen operational deployments around the world. During his time as a SEAL, he held a variety of positions that provided him a wealth of experience leading cross-functional teams, developing critical problem-solving skills, developing training curricula, and program management. Houin’s final position was the at the Naval Special Warfare Preparatory School in Great Lakes IL. In this capacity, his mission was to mentally and physically prepare all enlisted candidates for the SEAL training pipeline, with a focus on the development of character and leadership among the next generations of SEALs.
