3, 2, 1. A crisis strikes. What’s your plan? In this episode Admiral James Stavridis, the former supreme allied commander of NATO, shares leadership lessons from his decorated military career and gives a sneak peek into his new book, The Leader’s Bookshelf, which identifies the top 50 books that can help anyone become a better leader and manage through crisis.

“I think at some point, all the books you’ve read, all the lessons you’ve learned, your family — it all comes together in those difficult moments.”

In addition, the Admiral and Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory’s Mike Kearney discuss how military lessons can be translated into the business world; key leadership traits, such as self-examination, humor, and balance; and the importance of treating everyone in your organization with the same respect—regardless of their standing.
