Stan McChrystal served for thirty-four years in the US Army, rising from a second lieutenant in the 82nd Airborne Division to a four-star general, in command of all American and coalition forces in Afghanistan. During those years he worked with countless leaders, at every level of effectiveness, and pondered an ancient question: "What makes a leader great?" He came to realize that there is no simple answer. In this follow-up to his bestsellers My Share of the Task and Team of Teams, McChrystal profiles thirteen famous leaders from a wide range of eras and fields--from corporate CEOs to politicians and revolutionaries. He uses their stories to explore how leadership works in practice and to challenge the myths that complicate our thinking about this critical topic

As commander of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), General Stanley McChrystal discarded a century of management wisdom and pivoted from a pursuit of mechanical efficiency to organic adaptability. In this book, he shows how any organization can make the same transition to act like a team of teams - where small groups combine the freedom to experiment with a relentless drive to share their experience. Drawing on a wealth of evidence from his military career and sources as diverse as hospital emergency rooms and NASA's space program, McChrystal frames the existential challenge facing today's organizations, and presents a compelling, effective solution
Leaders : myth and reality by Stanley A McChrystal( Recording )

7 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Retired four-star general Stan McChrystal has studied leadership his whole adult life, from his first day at West Point to his most recent work with the corporate clients of the McChrystal Group. In this follow-up to his bestsellers My Share of the Task and Team of Teams, McChrystal explores what leadership really means, debunking the many myths that have surrounded the concept. He focuses on thirteen great leaders, showing that the lessons we commonly draw from their lives are seldom the correct ones. Chief among the leaders profiled is Robert E. Lee, one of McChrystal's heroes and is an icon to this day at West Point. On paper, Lee was the ideal leader. He excelled in every way possible for an Army officer in the decades before the Civil War. Yet Lee ultimately made the wrong choice about which side to serve--and then failed to lead his side to victory. Exploring Lee's life and leadership style, McChrystal explains how his idol's downfall forced him to rethink his own core assumptions. He also profiles pairs of unlikely leaders from diverse eras and fields, showing that leaders often use dramatically different tactics to achieve similar results

A case study in security sector reform : learning from security sector reform/building in Afghanistan (October 2002-September 2003) by Jason C Howk( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 70 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Security sector reform (SSR) is that set of policies, plans, programs, and activities that a government undertakes to improve the way it provides safety, security, and justice. This paper provides a case study to help explain the SSR concepts that were recently formalized in U.S. Army Field Manual 3.07, "Stability Operations Doctrine." It provides insights into how the military interacts with host-nation governments, the United Nations, the State Department, and national embassies to solve today's complex problems. The author's experience revealed many pitfalls in security sector building and international team-building that we are trying to avoid today. The author points out the synergy that was lost because of a lack of coordination and understanding between government officials and nongovernmental organizations like aid groups, academia, and think tanks
The praetorians by Jean Lartéguy( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean Larteguy's unflinching sequel to The Centurions, a searing novel of modern warfare admired by military experts, with a foreword by General Stanley McChrystal. Based on the events of May 1958 in France and Algeria, The Praetorians picks up in the footsteps of The Centurions, which was called "a stunning reflection of modern war" by Stanley McChrystal. After turning to tactics of guerilla warfare, a group of French paratroopers serving in the Algerian War is called to answer for actions they consider necessary, however immoral. Fearing another loss of French honor, they plot a coup that results in the return to power of Charles de Gaulle and the death of one of their own. With resonance to modern conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere, The Praetorians further develops some of Larteguy's most persistent and pertinent themes: counterinsurgency, the ugly, morally conflicted nature of modern war, and the seemingly unbridgeable gulf between the experiences of soldiers and of the civilians they serve."--
One mission : how leaders build a team of teams by Chris Fussell( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In One Mission, former Navy SEAL Chris Fussell draws on his extensive experience of high-pressure teamwork to show how organizations can successfully transform their way of doing business - become flatter, quicker and much more collaborative across departments and divisions. The result is a 'shared consciousness' around a single compelling mission that drives consistently better results. Using case studies, such as Intuit and Under Armour, One Mission shows how to harness the agility, adaptability and cohesion of small teams, and break down company silos to deliver extraordinary results across any size organization

Pale horse : hunting terrorists and commanding heroes with the 101st Airborne Division by Jimmy F Blackmon( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

PALE HORSE is the remarkable first-hand, never-before-told account of an army aviation task force during combat in the Afghan War, told by the commanding colonel who was there. Set in the very valleys where the attacks of 9/11 were conceived, and where ten Medals of Honor have been earned since that fateful day the war began, the narrative races from ferocious firefights and bravery in battle to the quiet moments where the courageous men and women of Task Force Pale Horse catch their breath before they take to the skies again. Colonel Jimmy F. Blackmon writes like he fights--with a power and hard-hitting honesty that leaps off the page. He has the respect of the men and women of his brigade, and a command of the narrative to tell their story. These are warriors from a variety of backgrounds who learned selflessness and found the closest brotherhood they ever knew through the crucible of war. PALE HORSE both honors and commemorates the service of this elite brigade from the unique vantage point of the colonel who loved them
