One Mission: How the Lessons from Special Operations Are Being Applied to the Complexity of Today's Corporate Environment

Chris Fussell, Lenore Karafa and Cleo Haynal, together, represent well over five decades of Special Operations experience. As members of the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams and the British Special Air Service, these leaders saw organizational change take place in real-time under the direst conditions on the battlefield. For the past several years, their team at McChrystal Group has been applying those same learnings to a wide range of industries, helping leadership teams redesign their communication, decision making and leadership models. Join us for an interactive discussion as they walk through how these lessons are relevant to the challenges CFOs face today.
