On May 18th, 2017, more than 80 business executives and Chief Financial Officers gathered at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner for the Northern Virginia Technology Council’s CFO Series.  This series event topic “One Mission: How the Lessons from Special Operations are Being Applied to the Complexity of Today’s Corporate Environment“. The panel included Chris Fussel, Partner at McChrystal Group, Lenore Karafa, Partner at McChrystal Group and Cleo Haynal, Principal at The McChrystal Group. Together they represent well over five decades of Special Operations experience. As members of the U.S. Navy SEAL Teams and the British Special Air Service, these leaders saw organizational change take place in real-time under their direst conditions on the battlefield. For the past several years, their team at McChrystal Group has been applying those same learnings to a wide range of industries, helping leadership teams redesign their communication, decision making and leadership models. The event was excellent opportunity to learn how these lessons are relevant to the challenges CFOs in the Washington DC area face today.
