LISTEN: A conversation with Gen. Stanley McChrystal

This week our podcast is with Stanley McChrystal, the retired Army general who led U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan before his resignation in 2010. In this conversation, McChrystal, who now leads a consulting firm called the McChrystal Group and recently published the book Team of Teams, talks about what the military could do to better attract, train and keep its next generation of leaders. He also reflects on the life lessons he took from combat and from the highs and lows of his career.
