The Private Sector Should Take A Cue From Military Teams

In an interview with Harvard Business Review, retired Army Gen. Stanley McChrystal discussed his book “Team of Teams,” and how trust between individuals is integral to mission success, both in the military and the private sector.

“You get a level of familiarity with teammates, and they get in-depth knowledge of you, too,” says McChrystal. “This informal set of interactions is really the magic. The more powerful those informal interactions are, where all it takes is one glance between one person and another, that’s how you go from command and control to organic movements.”
