McChrystal: Leading change isn’t easy: Retired Army four-star general speaks at Priority Midland kick-off
Tuesday, February 12, 2019
Priority Midland introduced itself to residents on Monday night at the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center.
The speaking lineup, which included economist Ray Perryman and retired Army four-star Gen. Stanley McChrystal, reminded the who’s who in local government and nonprofit and community organizations that the rate of change has increased exponentially in Midland and that a team of teams requires change.
McChrystal provided a first-hand look at how his experience as the head of Joint Special Operations Command in Iraq forced him to evolve as a military man and leader. Characteristics such as trust, a common purpose and shared consciousness were part of a foundation of bringing together entities that previously operated in a silo and helped to defeat al-Qaida in Iraq.
