This podcast interview is between: Tony Robbins, Mary Buckheit, General Stanley McChrystal and Chris Fussell
This was a truly fascinating conversation on leadership. I found it particularly interesting when General McChrystal was identifying the difficulties they had eliminated Al-Qaeda in Iraq. He touches on the point that, alongside their use of digital media, they had a decentralised chain of command where each team member has autonomy to act. As a result this empowered those individuals to feel like leaders. Now clearly Al-Qaeda can't be compared to a private sector stationary firm - but the principle is clear and essential for busineses to be aware of in the digital age.
