TED Talk: Gen. McChrystal on Leadership


 

I came to believe that a leader isn’t good because they’re right; they’re good because they’re willing to learn and to trust. This isn’t easy stuff. It’s not like that electronic abs machine where, 15 minutes a month, you get washboard abs. (Laughter) And it isn’t always fair. You can get knocked down, and it hurts and it leaves scars. But if you’re a leader, the people you’ve counted on will help you up. And if you’re a leader, the people who count on you need you on your feet. – General McChrystal
