Ep 40: Lt. Col. Scott Mann on Trust, Leadership, and Why Its Your Job to Rebuild America

How lessons learned while building coalitions against the Taliban can help you be a better cop in America.

Scott Mann spent 23 years in the U.S. Army, 18 of those as a Special Forces (Green Beret) officer. Scott retired from active-duty as a Lieutenant Colonel, after tours throughout South America, Iraq, and Afghanistan.

Scott is on a mission to teach Americans how we can defeat ISIS. As a result, you’ve probably seen him on CNN, Fox and Friends, Bloomberg Television, The O’Reilly Factor, Fox Business News and dozens of syndicated radio show appearances on National Public Radio, Wall Street Journal Radio, Fox News Radio and the Jim Bohannon Show. Scott has written op-eds for the Tampa Tribune, the Washington Post, and the Small Wars Journal.

Scott appears frequently on CNN, Bloomberg, Fox and Friends, Fox Business News, News Max and dozens of syndicated radio shows including National Public Radio, Wall Street Journal Radio, Fox News Radio and the Jim Bohannon Show. His op-eds have appeared in The Tampa Tribune, Washington Post and the Small Wars Journal.

Scott’s job was to go into hostile, or as he calls them, “trust-depleted” areas and build a network of allies to fight on their side. It doesn’t sound too far removed from Chicago or Milwaukee right about now. I think Scott’s ideas of “Rooftop Leadership” and “Ingroups vs Outgroups” are directly relatable to our lives in law enforcement.
