The transition to civilian life for four-star General Stanley McChrystal has been a smooth one. Since retiring from the U.S. Army in 2010, the general launched the McChrystal Group, a leadership consultancy, and began teaching as a senior fellow at Yale's Jackson Institute for Global Affairs. In his recent visit to the GSB as part of the View from the Top speaker series, McChrystal discussed the qualities of leadership and organizational behavior that were integral to his success both on the battlefield and in his transition to the private business world. His complete presentation can be seen here.
Dan Berschinski, MBA '15, who introduced the general, understands the nuances of professional transitions. After serving as an Army first lieutenant, he too is now adapting to the business world.
