Stanley McChrystal: Listen, learn ... then lead | Video on

TED Talks Four-star general Stanley McChrystal shares what he learned about leadership over his decades in the military. How can you build a sense of shared purpose among people of many ages and skill sets?

Via Dr. Anna Kayes
Karl Wabst's insight:

This is an excellent video with relevant lessons about the importance of listening and continuing to learn before, during and after attaining a leadership role.  


You never know when changing events may require you to work in a whole new world. The lessons apply to the business world as well as the military. 


Much of McCrystal's comments reflect lessons on (change) leadership from the US Army War College -  Strategic Leadership Primer - that introduced the acronym VUCA. 


Leading change brought about by new technologies, new roles, generational shifts, geopolitical issues and how people go through and adapt to change is becoming relevant to leaders everywhere.
