How to lead remote teams, the Navy SEAL way
What worked in 2019 is dead, says Chris Fussell, former Navy SEAL and president of leadership consulting firm McChrystal Group.
The COVID-19 crisis has launched us headfirst into a new "normal", and the organizations that survive and thrive will be the ones that can lead their remote teams effectively. That means more than merely transitioning to Zoom meetings.
In this live session, Chris Fussell will leverage his experience as a Navy SEAL and his expertise in leadership to detail how you can design an operating rhythm, articulate a strategy, and maintain your culture for an extended remote world.
- How U.S. Special Operations teams evolved from a segmented operational model toward a team of teams model.
- A checklist of leadership behavior changes that are critical for remote work environments
- 6 Navy SEAL qualities to embrace in uncertain times: grit, refusal to quit, team-orientation, focus, ability to deal with disruption and pivot, acceptance of reality.
Chris Fussell is the co-author of NYT best-selling book Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World, and its sequel, WSJ best-selling book One Mission: How Leaders Build a Team of Teams.
Who is to blame for the U.S.'s dismal college graduation rate? "Radical" educator Dennis Littky has a hunch.
- COVID-19 has magnified the challenges that underserved communities face with regard to higher education, such as widening social inequality and sky-high tuition.

- My teaching mantra: Everything is permitted during COVID-19. Everything is permitted during COVID-19. Everything is permitted during COVID-19.
What does it mean to "lead without authority"?
The planet that we are searching for is a little bit smaller and closer than we originally thought.
- Years ago, California Institute of Technology professor Konstantin Batygin was inspired to embark on a journey of discovering what lurked beyond Neptune. What he and his collaborator discovered was a strange field of debris.
- This field of debris exhibited a clustering of orbits, and something was keeping these orbits confined. The only plausible source would be the gravitational pull of an extra planet—Planet Nine.
- While Planet Nine hasn't been found directly, the pieces of the puzzle are coming together. And Batygin is confident we'll return to a nine-planet solar system within the next decade.
