General McChrystal on the Art of Leadership Against Today’s Enemy

AMU professor Lawrence Dietz recently attended a talk by General Stanley McChrystal who discussed the challenges of leading large, diverse groups. Learn more about how McChrystal's leadership style evolved during his military service and how he learned to treat teams as if they are individuals so that teams can effectively interact with other teams just as individuals interact with each other to provide reinforcement, support, and assistance.

During his talk, McChrystal also described the challenges of facing a new kind of enemy that was not organized in the traditional hierarchical way, but rather composed of a loose network enabled by real-time communications using mobile phones and the Internet.
