Too often, companies end up with teams stuck in their own silos, pursuing goals and metrics in isolation. In his new book, One Mission: How Leaders Build a Team of Teams, Chris L. Fussell channels his experiences, in the military as a 15-year Navy SEAL veteran and in the corporate world, into a practical guide for developing strategies to create the type of “team of teams” that General McChrystal applied against al Qaeda in Iraq and was described in their previous book Team of Teams.
Fussell is a senior fellow with the International Security program at New America. He spent 15 years as an officer in the Navy SEAL Teams, before transitioning into the private sector. Fussell is now a Partner at McChrystal Group, an advisory services and leadership development firm headquartered in Old Town, Alexandria.
During his active duty career with the SEAL Teams, Fussell deployed multiple times to Iraq, Afghanistan, and other nations in the Central Command region. From 2007-2008, he served as Aide-de-Camp to General (Ret.) Stanley A. McChrystal, then Commanding General of the Joint Special Operations Command. In addition to his latest book, Fussell coauthored Team of Teams: New Rules of Engagement for a Complex World, with General McChrystal.
