[January 7, 2016] Coming Soon … starting tomorrow I will be providing links to help readers who are leaders. Each is an excellent study of leadership (failures and successes) … it could be a book, a professional article, a website, a YouTube video, or anything that shines light on what great senior leadership is about.
Here are a few examples:
General Stanley McChrystal, former commander of U.S. International Forces in Afghanistan talks about leadership (a TED video, 16 minutes) – http://www.ted.com/talks/stanley_mcchrystal
Today is the anniversary of the overthrow of one of the world’s worst dictators, Pol Pot of Cambodia. Good reading about unintended consequences – http://www.history.com/this-day-in-history/pol-pot-overthrown
Professional article on senior leader decision-making and “dealing with uncertainty” – http://www.strategicstudiesinstitute.army.mil/pubs/parameters/issues/Autumn_2015/9_Ben-Haim.pdf
Michael Ramirez, my favorite political cartoonist – http://www.investors.com/editorial-cartoons/michael-ramirez/788508-north-korea
A review on a new book by Michael Javen Fortner entitled Black Silent Majority: The Rockefeller Drug Laws and the Politics of Punishment – http://www.city-journal.org/2016/bc0106jr.html
