    OPE: One Year Later (Part 2)(ft. Zach Lois)

    On this week’s episode of ‘OPE: One Year Later’ Scott sits down with fellow retired Green Beret and 7th Group Special Forces member, Zac Lois. Zac has been instrumental in his efforts with Operation Pineapple Express and continues to contribute to the rescue of our Afghan Allies left behind. Join Scott and Zac as they discuss how Zac’s military background combined with his post-service educational career helped him navigate Afghan Allies to safety and ultimately answer the call when no one was coming.

    CONTEXT ON THIS SERIES

    In August of 2021, the United States Government officially withdrew from Afghanistan leaving hundreds of thousands of at-risk Afghans vulnerable to Taliban brutality. Immediately, the impact of this moral injury was apparent on out Afghan allies and veteran populations with many of them left behind to deal with the aftermath that no one was coming.

    Scott and a team of combat veterans began to leverage their network of relationships to provide safe passage and ultimately relocation of hundreds of at-risk Afghans. Scott now has the opportunity to share the story of those Afghan Allies who made it out and of those who are still fighting their way to safety today, alongside many of the extraordinary men and women who made this possible. In this podcast series, Scott sits down with some of the members of Pineapple Express to share their stories and reflect on where we are one year later after the collapse of Afghanistan.

    OPE: One Year Later (Part 1)

    As we approach the one-year anniversary of the collapse of Afghanistan, it’s important to offer reflections on what happened last year, what it means for us today and for the future. Our veteran population and Afghan Allies, those brought to safety and those still at-risk, have been profoundly impacted from the events of August 2021 and many will grapple with the imposed trauma for years to come. Join Scott on this special look at Operation Pineapple Express One-Year Later as he offers reflections on where we have been, where we are, his hopes for the legacy of Operation Pineapple Express and what’s being done to continue to #HonorThePromise and #FinishTheMission.

    Leading Our Kids Out of the Storm (ft. Rachel Walters)

    Leading Our Kids Out of the Storm (ft. Rachel Walters)

    This week we have special guest Rachel Walters, the Principal of Tinker K-8 School on MacDill Airforce Base, joining Scott to break down the effects the past few years have had on our children. No matter what arena you are in as a leader, you need to get comfortable with being uncomfortable and one way to do that is by being vulnerable – or as we say it at Rooftop Leadership, being relatable. This is especially crucial when you are communicating with your children as you help them navigate through the chaos, churn, and reemergence from the pandemic. Join us for this episode of The Rooftop as Scott and Rachel dive deep into the importance of mental health not only for yourself but also for the ones you’re leading.

    The Illusion of Control (Part 2)(ft. Dr. Don Wood)

    The Illusion of Control (Part 2)(ft. Dr. Don Wood)

    This week we have special guest Dr. Don Wood, a clinical counselor and the founder of The Inspired Performance Institute, joining Scott to discuss the onset of anxiety when your brain is trying to put you into action. As a society, we’ve begin to believe that the visceral response of anxiety is negative, but not necessarily. If you can begin to accept that anxiety is normal and not inherently dangerous, then you’ll be able to keep it from spiraling out of control. Join The Rooftop Podcast as Scott and Dr. Wood breakdown the causes of anxiety and how you can combat it to help navigate your environment.

    The Illusion of Control (Part 1)

    The Illusion of Control (Part 1)

    Have you ever noticed how we tend to have an illusion of control over outcomes? When you focus on the hypothetical of control, you lose your resilience and your ability to lead. As a leaders, we have to manage our energy first before we can lead anyone else - if you can’t manage your own energy and you focus on these illusions of control, fear-based behavior is going to sneak its way in. Join Scott as he discusses how we can overcome this illusion of control and maintain our leadership energy to avoid falling into the trap of fear-based behavior.

    Waterline Article #10: Revenge and Feuds Are Always Lurking

    Waterline Article #10: Revenge and Feuds Are Always Lurking

    WATERLINE ARTICLE #10: Revenge and Feuds Are Always Lurking.

    When you allow in-groups and out-groups to manifest and operate in modern society, the group becomes more relevant than the individual. As a civil society and liberal democracy we need leaders to preserve individualism and encourage bridging beyond ones in-groups. If they don’t, the status mentality of the group will elicit honor and shame – creating feuds and the desire for revenge. Join Scott this week as he continues the discussion on the dangerous impact in-groups and out-groups can have on the collective.


    CONTEXT ON THIS SERIES
    In 1917, T.E. Lawrence, who you might know as Lawrence of Arabia overthrew the Ottoman Turks in WWI in modern-day Iraq and Syria, using strategic human connections at the local level. He did so by going into tribal environments and creating a level of trust that unified various tribes around one thing that they could all agree on through storytelling of ‘what could be.’ He wanted to help others who followed behind him do the same so he wrote The 27 Articles to share with them.

    Scott has taken these Lawrencian skills and adapted them to the Rooftop Leadership methodology and in this series will share the 27 Waterline Articles for the Rooftop Leader with you so that you are better equipped to lead through the disengagement, distrust, and distraction brought on by prolonged isolation, low trust, and uncertainty. If you’ll lean into these and integrate them into your life and business, you will be more attuned to the people you lead and be able to look at human behavior in a new way that allows you to lead at a higher level.

    You can read the original 27 Articles by T.E. Lawrence here: https://wwi.lib.byu.edu/index.php/The_27_Articles_of_T.E._Lawrence

Listen & Take Notes

I found this Podcast after watching ‘Last Out’; I laughed and cried so hard during that play that I went looking for the minds behind it.
Plot Spoiler - the minds are great and so is the Podcast. It’s different than ‘Last Out’ but applicable for everyone. I am still working my way through the older episodes but each podcast I listen to is more and more relevant, insightful and helpful.

The right message for this time

Scott’s podcast gives me hope in our future byes raising up the leaders we need

granadachica ,

You give me hope as an American

Leave no man behind. I think this is what most Americans believe, and why people on both the left and the right have recoiled in terror at the debacle of our retreat from Afghanistan. Most of us are powerless to do anything to help, so we are in awe of the fierce determination and resourcefulness you’ve shown to rescue our Afghan allies. Thank you for showing the world what the American spirit is. You are my heroes. I thank God for every life that you’ve plucked from certain death, and I can’t wait to hear more of their stories as they settle in as our fellow countrymen and change our country for the better, one by one.
