Former Leader of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC)
Co-Founder of The McChrystal Group / Author of My Share of the Task: A Memoir

General Stanley McChrystal is a four-star general, the former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, and the former leader of Joint Special Operations Command, which oversees the most sensitive counter-terrorism units. A leadership innovator, he was the first to develop a philosophy that focused on transparency and aligning disparate groups – the same methodology that led America’s troops to become more adaptable and innovative than al-Qaeda. He is also widely praised for revolutionizing warfare by fusing intelligence and operations and credited with the capture of Saddam Hussein and the location and killing al-Qaeda’s leader in Iraq. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates called McChrystal “one of America’s greatest warriors.”

In 2010, McChrystal retired from the military after 34 years of service, and in 2011, he co-founded the McChrystal Group, which delivers innovative leadership solutions to organizations. He is also the author of the upcoming My Share of the Task: A Memoir.
