LOCAL>> General Stanley McChrystal – Risk: A User’s Guide

LOCAL>> General Stanley McChrystal – Risk: A User’s Guide

The general discusses his new book about detecting and responding to risk

From his first day at West Point to his years of deployment in Afghanistan, retired four-star U.S. Army General Stanley McChrystal is no stranger to the deadly risks of combat.

Throughout his illustrious career and efforts helping business leaders navigate a global pandemic, General McChrystal has seen how individuals and organizations have failed to mitigate risk by focusing solely on the probability of something happening as opposed to the interface by which it can be managed.

In his new book, Risk: A User’s Guide, McChrystal and co-author Anna Butrico offer a battle-tested system for detecting and responding to risk. This book offers an alternative way of maintaining a healthy “risk immune system” that involves monitoring 10 different dimensions of control the authors say can be adjusted at any time to effectively anticipate, identify, analyze and act upon the ever-present possibility that things will not go as planned.

Join us as General McChrystal reveals an entirely new way to understand risk and master the unknown.
