From his first day at West Point, to his years in Afghanistan, to his efforts helping business leaders navigate a global pandemic, McChrystal has seen how individuals and organizations fail to mitigate risk. Why? Because they focus on the probability of something happening instead of the interface by which it can be managed.
Through the lens of leadership, General McChrystal will explain how to build and strengthen your organization’s risk immune system. While you may have a risk problem, you also have a risk opportunity—and therefore, you must take the necessary steps to rise to the occasion.
Four-star General (Ret.) Stanley McChrystal was called “one of America’s greatest warriors” by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. Following leadership and staff positions in the Army Special Forces, Army Rangers, 82nd Airborne Division, the XVIII Army Airborne Corp., and the Joint Staff, Gen. McChrystal became commander of Joint Special Operations Command in 2003, responsible for leading the nation’s elite military counterterrorism efforts around the global.
His leadership is credited with the 2003 capture of Saddam Hussein and the 2006 locating and killing of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq. Currently, his advisory services firm, McChrystal Group, helps companies challenge the hierarchical “command and control” approach to organizational management.
He has authored several books including My Share of the Task, Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World, Leaders: Myth and Reality, and his newest, Risk: A User’s Guide.
