Description

The retired four-star general and best-selling author of My Share of the Task shares a powerful new leadership model

Former general Stanley McChrystal held a key position for much of the War on Terror, as head of the Joint Special Operations Command. In Iraq he found that despite the vastly superior resources, manpower, and training of the US military, Al Qaeda had an advantage because of its structure as a loose network of small, independent cells. Those cells wreaked havoc by always staying one step ahead, sharing knowledge with each other via high-tech communications.

To defeat such an agile enemy, JSOC had to change its focus from efficiency to adaptability. McChrystal led the transformation of his forces into a network that combined robust centralized communication ("shared consciousness") with decentralized managerial authority ("empowered execution").

Now he shows not only how the military made that transition but also how similar shifts are possible in all kinds of organizations, from large companies to startups to charities to government agencies. In a world of rapid change, the best organizations think and act like a team of teams, embracing small groups that combine the freedom to experiment with a relentless drive to share what they've learned.

McChrystal and his colleagues explain their process for helping organizations embrace this model. They also share fascinating research and examples from settings as diverse as emergency rooms and NASA's mission control center.

Read by Paul Michael. Introduction and recaps read by General Stanley McChrystal.

Team of Teams

This is by far the best book I've ever been through for leadership, particularly for the 21st century! I highly recommend taking the time to read it. There are so many rich examples of effective leadership strategies that are so relevant in a world where information travels faster than ever before.

must-read for the new age

An awesome achievement of a book, and a greatly-delivered audio performance. One to return to again and again.

Brilliant

Brilliant compilation of history, personal and collective experience, application of theory, and all fused together with wisdom. Excellent clarity, wonderful humility, and thought provoking perspective. How often the "system" responses to "error" events are inappropriate over-simplifications of the complexity of the process involved. The higher the complexity, the greater the necessity for nimbleness of the empowered team members who all share the same vision of the goal.

great storytelling along with business relevance

we have a small organization but we want to grow larger. This book helped me understand a little bit more about the path forward to Ward scaling up. My fears are always around losing control and the book helped me understand that I can't keep control. I also really enjoyed the storytelling aspect of all the ancient battles and War history.

Very business relevant

Many of the lessons here are extremely relevant to modern business behemoths being assaulted in all profit centres by highly mobile, capital light, target specific competitors.

Great book - A must read for leaders of orgs

Was not sure how this book would go and I must say I loved it. General McChrystal does a fantastic job of laying out his experiences in the military and relating them to leading any organization. He combines the past, present, and future of leadership styles. The most disappointing thing is my organization is one stuck in the past and this book made it much clearer how behind the times we are.

21st century team leadership

Great insights that apply to leading Agile Development teams of all scales. Leaders can truly lead an adaptive organization if they can let go of their "heroic leader" tendencies.

great information about the change in business

loved hearing the historical references of the industrial revolution, how it changed business and the military and how the same rules don't necessarily apply today

Information age leadership at its best

Stanley McChrystal does a great job explaining the interconnectedness of shared Consciousness and empowered execution through anecdotes and examples. I was impressed with the use of other Industries and projects to highlight military leadership Concepts

Leading in a networked world

Well written, fascinating tour de force of how we will lead and manage in our enveloping age of complexity. Any leader or manager who ignores the lessons so clearly explained here does so at her own risk. As a bonus, the lesson reads like a 'page turner' novel.
