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.
Grit is something you can't learn in schools, but can only learn in the real world. Or, by watching this video. From Harvard historian Nancy Koehn, here's what great leaders throughout history can tell you about resilience.
Great leaders are few and far between but Nancy Koehn, a historian of business at Harvard Business School, has put together a compendium of anecdotes from five great leaders throughout history. It reads like a whos-who of humanitarianism, with true stories of grit and determination from the likes of explorer Ernest Shackleton, American president Abraham Lincoln, the abolitionist Frederick Douglass, the Nazi-resisting Lutheran minister Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and the environmental activist Rachel Carson. Here, Nancy Koehn talks to us about how Ernest Shackleton overcame some incredible odds to hold his team together on a doomed Antarctic expedition, and how we can learn from his stories. Nancy's great new book is Forged in Crisis: The Power of Courageous Leadership in Turbulent Times.
