Debrief to Win
When you and your team win, do you know why? Conversely, when you fail, do you have any idea how close you came to winning?
Today’s leaders are expected to deliver results in an era of unrelenting, exponential change. This fast-paced environment, coupled with the imperative to deliver short-term profits, means that far too many organizations don’t focus on the factors behind their wins or their losses.
In this brief video, I chat with author, U.S. Air Force F-15 & F-22 pilot, and retired Air Force Weapons School instructor Robert “Cujo” Teschner. Cujo recently worked with members of one of my Vistage groups on how to apply the military’s debrief model to their organizations. After you watch the video, I also encourage you to purchase a copy of Cujo’s book Debrief to Win: How America’s Top Guns Practice Accountable Leadership…and How You Can, Too! (Vmax Group’s Debrief-Focused Approach).
Let me know in the comments if you debrief and how it has helped you win. Because, as Slider said in Top Gun, “Remember, boys, no points for second place.”
