Storyteller Series: Rob O'Neill


A former SEAL Team Six Leader, Robert O’Neill’s mantra is “Never quit,” and he gives audiences an inside-look inside his most dangerous missions. In this video, he tells the nail-biting story of the day he was called into the mission to rescue Captain Phillips from Somali pirates, and the ironic circumstance of waiting in line at 7-11 as a frustrating customer inadvertently held up the mission. Rob shares his views on the ingredients to a successful mission: the right people, preparedness, decision-making under pressure, and (above all) a commitment to never quit.

In the world of high-pressure Navy SEAL missions, instant, critical decision-making is a necessity for success. He has proven experience in exceptionally high-risk and fluid environments. Having trained more than 800 special operations and tactical operators, O’Neill brings this unique expertise to organizations and translates his elite SEAL team training into high-impact, actionable insights on leadership, decision-making, operating in uncertain environments, and how to become the ‘best of the best.’ O’Neill reminds us that the servicemen doing the dirtiest work are often making the hardest sacrifices.
