Stan and Chris know the power of the Operations & Intelligence
or O&I brief. As a part of Stan's efforts to transform Joint
Special Operations Command, he leaned on Operations & Intelligence
brief, or the O&I. It was a tremendously powerful tool that
connected countries around the globe and drove the "battle rhythm"
of the counterterrorist force.
This week's guest, Jeff Sonnenfeld, runs a similar forum at
Yale University. Jeff, the Senior Associate Dean for Leadership
Studies & a Professor in the Practice of Management at Yale
University's School of Management, leads the CEO Summit, which
brings leaders from top businesses, parts of government, and
scholars from all corners to discuss important leadership
In today's episode, Stan and Chris speak to Jeff about the CEO
Summit. They discuss how and why Jeff created
this format, like the O&I, a special tool to connect leaders
everywhere against shared challenges. During the discussion, Jeff
also speaks to the role of a leader: whether it is to have the
moral courage or to appease the constituency.
