A Compelling Talk On 21st Century Leadership

In a recent coffee conversation with David Lunken of PI Midlantic we were discussing leadership and how it has changed over time. He mentioned seeing a video of a talk by General Stanley McChrystal who commanded our military forces in both Iraq and Afghanistan. McChrystal gave a talk earlier this year on what he has learned about leadership in his career and especially since September 11, 2001. He cites how quickly life became different for him and all of us that day and how being a leader that listens and learns is the right kind of leader-regardless of the situation. His talk was posted on Ted.com and here is the link. Watch it several times and ask yourself what it teaches you that you can put to use right away
