Accompanied by a foreword from General Stanley McChrystal, this book asks a simple question: How do you train and develop people for tomorrow when you do not know what tomorrow will hold?
This book is not another "how to" strategy for adapting to uncertainty. Because there is no enduring plan when nothing stays the same. The only path is to invest in developing each individual's unique capacity, at their own pace, so people can figure out the right solutions by themselves.
The book's practices and ideas were successfully tested in the life-or-death laboratory of warfare. But we have found that they work just as well in the workplace, sports field and classroom. How will they work for your context? We challenge you to figure that out.
"People are above anything else. This essential truth, often forgotten by organizations and leaders, is at the heart of this engaging and insightful book."
"The ideas in this book about Leadership, Teamwork and Selfless Service are concepts that are applicable to both the military and professional sports as well as to our everyday lives and jobs."
