Thom Shea is a retired, highly decorated Navy SEAL Senior Chief, author of UNBREAKABLE: A Navy SEAL’s Way of life, which was originally intended to be collection of lessons to his children in the event that he did not survive combat in Afghanistan. He is the founder of Adamantine Alliance where he is a leadership instructor, speaker, executive coach. Along with a small team of his SEAL brothers, he provides corporate consulting for companies across America and in several other continents.
Thom’s never quit mentality was personified in his experience as a student in BUD/s (SEAL) training, having gone through FIVE, yes, FIVE Hell Weeks. He sustained injuries in his first four attempts including a concussion, a dislocated shoulder and two iterations of pneumonia. The instructors observed that in spite of these injuries, he never asked to quit the course. As a result, they continued to invite him back to try to complete the course. Which he did. In class 207.
