New Book: Gen. Stanley McChrystal on Mastering Risk

Stanley McChrystal: Risk - A User's Guide

Retired four-star General Stanley McChrystal is who leaders are looking to for insights and guidance on managing risk and tackling the unknown as they position their organizations for the future. In sharing his expertise with business leaders, he's approaching this topic in an entirely new, actionable way — focused not on odds, but on readiness to respond.

A Proactive Approach to Risk Management

The former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, a New York Times best-selling author, and co-founder of the prestigious McChrystal consultancy, McChrystal's leadership talks are inspiring, powerful, and packed with stories from the battlefield and the board room.

Witnessing first-hand how organizations often fail to mitigate risk — from his first day at West Point, to his years in Afghanistan, to his efforts helping business leaders navigate a global pandemic — he’s authored a new book Risk: A User’s Guide that reveals his battle-tested system for detecting and responding to risk, and mastering the unknown.

Providing hard-won guidance, practical exercises to improve preparedness, and examples from the military and business worlds. McChrystal illustrates the 10 dimensions of control to effectively anticipate, identify, analyze, and act upon the ever-present possibility that things will not go as planned — and exert mastery over every conceivable risk.
