When I retired from the military, I decided to write a book that would capture my leadership experiences and lessons learned. I took 35 years in the Army and four years at West Point and condensed it to nine leadership principles, with a focus on faith and family.
The book is entitled Adapt or Die: Leadership Principles from an American General.
Adaptive leadership is relevant to all segments of society, but it is especially critical to the pharmaceutical industry. It is imperative to build adaptive leaders and adaptive organizations. In today’s environment, circumstances change almost continuously. Resources that were counted on are no longer available. Weather, war, natural disasters all impact what we are doing day to day.
In the military, if leaders and organizations didn’t adapt, folks literally died.
In corporate America, if leaders don’t adapt, organizations will self destruct—the analogous experience of “death in life.”
