What the Post-9/11 World Should Have Taught Us About Leadership

Be Less in Control

by David Meyer

Relinquishing control yields better, longer-lasting solutions that preserve and enhance your power as a leader and your power as an organization.

Martin Dempsey, former chair of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Ori Brafman, author and business professor, show that holding a competitive edge no longer depends on maintaining control. Brafman and Dempsey provide specific inclusion strategies as they help leaders understand how their organizations are operating differently in today’s more global, interconnected and communicative environment. The authors reach out to leaders who recognize – or should recognize – that old practices must change.

We must develop an instinct for seeking opportunities to share control in order to preserve and even enhance the power we possess. Martin Dempsey and Ori Brafman

Having Dempsey discuss how command-and-control organizations are now obsolete is pretty fascinating. His astonishing embrace of relinquishing control, given that he spent his career in the ultimate command-and-control environment – the military – grants him and Brafman immediate credibility.
