Stan McChrystal has spent a lifetime attempting to mitigate risk: importantly, in the military, and critically now in the corporate sector. He concluded that we don’t handle risk very well – at both the individual and organizational level. This reality had been percolating at the back of his mind for quite some time. The events of the last few years brought these issues to the front burner, and are the topic of his latest book, Risk: A User’s Guide.

This mini-series on No Turning Back will analyze risk in several parts. Stan and Chris will kick off the series today by exploring how the special operations community thinks of, and responds to, risk.
