FREE DOWNLOAD ¿ Leaders: Myth and Reality Stanley McChrystal ✓ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE READ Leaders: Myth and Reality Olent deathIn truth neither Plutarch nor Shakespeare knew exactly what happened and neither do we We have no choice but to interpret events through the words they ve given us Both the biographer and the playwright do their best to capture the complexity in their own way Alas what we remember selectively is that Caesar crossed the Rubicon boldly and then died while uttering the three famous words that he probably never saidLooking at the biographers and playwrights versions of history side by side we see that Caesars leadership was not as heroic as its often remembered So too was the case with WashingtonInside the West Wing lobby of the White House hangs a reproduction of Leutze s Washington Crossing the Delaware The painting is a favorite stop for White House staffers giving tours to guests who are entertained with a catalog of the painting s historical flaws the Delaware River never froze in this way the river is far too wide the boat is heading the wrong way the flag is wrong for the period and so on But the most interesting factual flaw is the boat itself Rather than the rickety whaling rowboat depicted by Leutze Washington is believed to have used a sixty foot flat bottom barge complete with artillery a far better option for an army conducting a winter s night river crossingIn a radically different depiction of the crossing was unveiled at the New York Historical Society complete with the flat bottom barge Artist Mort Knstler had been commissioned by a Mr Thomas R Suozzi who told him I want to go up against the existing painting The other painting is great but it doesn t tell the realistic story Aside from the boat the most striking difference between the Leutze and Knstler versions is Washington himself In the original the General is fully upright in the tiny boat seemingly lunging forward his center of gravity elevated and perched over a miniature iceberg In the remake he s still standing but he s carefully balanced his right hand holding a firm grip on a nearby cannon to steady himselfKnstler s work corrected inaccuracies of history while also fixing a critical flaw in how we often depict the practice of leadership It is of course human nature to steady oneself in a boat at night for human balance is imperfect Few real leaders even military generals present themselves riskily in a rowboat refusing support as if posing for posterity And yet observers rarely see the depiction of Washington towering above a small boat in a freezing body of water at night as peculiar Instead we often accept such absurdly displayed feats of heroic leadership as normalMiranda s depiction of Washington as the American founder too selfless to accept a crown was similarly skewed and there wasto the idealized story As Chernow explains by the time of his resignation Washington was suffering from an aching back bad dentures and rheumatism visitors noted his haggard careworn look America s founding father was after all still human Washington was certainly motivated by the principle of civic rule but he was also physically and mentally tiredA uick scan of these various accounts of two leaders tells us as much about methods of storytelling as about the leaders themselves Biographers typically tell the stories of individual leaders emphasizing the significance of their decision making Unsurprisingly leaders who draw most of their leadership ideas from biographies learn to adjust their own narrative frames to keep themselves at the center The stories they tell themselves and others are misleading in a way that we humans crave in a complex world biography simplifies the complexity of collective human systems down tomanageable individual elementsThe playwright often has a different perspective focusing on the relationships among individuals particularly when those relationships contain conflict or comedy While the biographer helps the reader to know the attributes of the leader the playwright gets the theatergoer to experience the drama of relationships enveloping that leaderIn truth we crave both the biographer and the playwright As individuals we appreciate the biographer s focus on the actors and as social animals we enjoy the playwright s dramatic depiction of their relationships Yet both storytellers have contributed to the mythology of leadership Where the biographer fuels our leader centrism the playwright or the painter enables leader romanticism Between the two effects we devise narratives that obscure the role of followers and wrongly attribute complex outcomes to mere individuals Caesar s strength both defined and ended his empire and Washington won the Revolutionary War and founded the United StatesIn reality the lessons of leadership are not the ones we most naturally derive from the legends The Rubicon reminds us that real leaders experience doubt and consult with others Similarly the lesson of the Delaware is not that good leaders are blas in taking on unnecessary risk A real leader might not utter a pithy line upon being stabbed he might just uietly die of internal bleeding When a real leader relinuishes power he might be upholding the principles of democracy or he might also simply be fatiguedLeadership is a famously difficult term to define As The Bass Handbook of Leadership observes often a two day meeting to discuss leadership has started with a day of argument over the definition Bass also notes that leadership expert Joseph Rost found definitions of leadership in examined publicationsOf course few leaders are so concerned with uibbling over definitions In our experience most people think of leadership as the process of influencing a group toward some defined outcome This definition suggests that leadership is the process of one person herding the group toward goals and that leaders at the top craft and direct those endpoints Perhaps worse our uest to understand leadership has follo.

come to think of leadership as simply what leaders doHere lies the root cause of the mythology of leadership its relentless focus on the leader For years human beings have searched for the secret of leadership by studying why certain leaders achieve enviable results where others do not To the detriment of the study of leadership rarely do we look to the individuals around the senior leader We assume the leader controls the process undervaluing the role of followers and situational context Moreover we pretend that leadership is goals driven and that good outcomes can be gained through the correct formula of effective leadership We wrongly believe that what happened in one leadership instance can be replicated in anotherThis common understanding of leadership when held up against the

reality outcomes are attributable to farthan the individual leaderThe Results Myth We say that leadership is the process of driving groups of people toward outcomes That s true to a point but it s

leaders represent such as social identity or some future opportunityThe power and prevalence of this mythology of leadership rival those of religion or romance these myths seem universal and

executives often speak of the importance of leadership but when they re asked to list the threats to their business they generally list exogenous factors rarely listing their own leadership as a risk factorIn part we live with this mythology because it serves a useful function As with religion leadership offers value by crafting a narrative that helps make sense of the world around us even when it eludes our comprehension Leadership provides a framework for assigning causality when things go well and eually a way to assign blame when things go otherwise And as with romance leadership holds our attention and captures our imagination stirring feelings that we don t always understandDespite this utility the mythology often leads us astray with adverse conseuences and risks to society When we buy into the mythology our leadership models are made less effective and we construct elaborate processes to select assess and train leaders who perpetuate existing weaknesses And dangerously we

FREE DOWNLOAD ¿ Leaders: Myth and Reality Stanley McChrystal ✓ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE READ Leaders: Myth and Reality OneThe MythologyThings are not always as they seem the first appearance deceives many phaedrus roman poet ca bce ceIn BCE with the dramatic proclamation The die is cast Julius Caesar made the fateful decision to cross the Rubicon River at the head of his th Legion The crossing of the Rubicon was momentous because the river demarcated the boundary between Italy and the province of Gaul to the north where Caesar was serving as governor Suspicious of his growing power the Senate had ordered him to disband his army and return to Rome But Caesar defying the Senate decided to return not in submission but in rebellion marching on Rome with his legion By crossing into Italian territory with an army Caesar had irrevocably made himself a traitorFor all it s Caesar s river crossing was a relatively modest affair in which the future ruler and his legionnaires merely waded across a shin deep stream Nonetheless this act put him in irreconcilable opposition to Rome s Senate making the expression crossing the Rubicon forever synonymous with passing a point of no returnThe story about how Caesar and his legion marched on Rome survived on the parchment of the Lives a series of profiles of famous men recorded by the Greek biographer Plutarch Plutarch also recorded that the Senate five years later in the hope that the government of a single person would give them time to breathe after so many civil wars and calamities made Caesar dictator for life And yet within two months he was assassinated the knives wielded by many of those same senators As Plutarch explains Caesar s pretension and the extravagance of his new title had motivated the group including Caesar s close friend Marcus Junius Brutus to conspire against himToday those of us who know Julius Caesar s story most likely learned it not from reading Plutarch but from Shakespeare s Julius Caesar In the bard s telling of the assassination Caesar struggles until he sees Brutus among the attackers and realizes the depth of his betrayal Famously his dying utterance is the poignant Et tu Brute Then fall Caesar Almost two millennia later another General would become famous by crossing a river Unlike the modest Rubicon the Delaware could not be crossed by wading so George Washington had no choice but to cross by boat a scene memorialized in Washington Crossing the Delaware one of Americas most recognizable paintings On a canvas measuring over twenty one feet wide Emanuel Leutze captured the daring of Americas founding father and first presidentThe parallels between Caesar and Washington go beyond the rivers they crossed as generals Just as Caesar s final phase of leadership was reenacted by Shakespeare through the rhythm of iambic pentameter the final act of Washington s leadership was depicted by the playwright Lin Manuel Miranda who four centuries later chose hip hop as the rhythm to dramatize Washington s retirement in his theatrical story of Alexander Hamilton And where Shakespeare had turned to Plutarch s Lives Miranda found his inspiration within the pages of Ron Chernow s biography Alexander HamiltonThe musical closes with the rap song One Last Time in which George Washington s decision to step down after his second term is met by a disbelieving Hamilton Hamilton Why do you have to say goodbye Washington If I say goodbye the nation learns to move onIt outlives me when I m goneMiranda said later that he sought to celebrate Washington s humanity and frailty lifting up the rare example of a leader who voluntarily relinuishes power In the playwright s drama Washington selflessly prioritizes the fledgling nation s democracy over the pursuit of power consistent with the founding father s legacy of leadershipFor would be leaders the oft told stories of audacious river crossings and of the dramatic finales of Julius Caesar and George Washington are both inspiring and intimidating The stories would behelpful though if leadership actually worked the way the legends imply In fact for both Caesar and Washington leadership was hardly so simpleHistory codified Caesar s The die is cast as a declaration of courage and decisiveness but the proclamation also marked a moment of profound doubt Plutarch tells us but popular history forgets that Caesar ordered a halt when he approached the river and that he wavered much in his mindand often changed his opinion one way and the other Before pressing on he sought counsel when his purposes fluctuated most And yet halting wavering and fluctuating are not how we tend to view leaders nor how leaders seek to be remembered Truly effective leaders we like to believe are not susceptible to the fog of doubt they act decisively and face the conseuences But few real leaders have actually operated this waySo too Caesar s dying words Et tu Brute were likely dramatic license taken by Shakespeare and other Elizabethan playwrights Plutarch s version of the assassination itself was the stuff of a very different dramaWhen he is first attacked rather than make an exclamation that might endear him to history Caesarnaturally grabbed the offending dagger and tried to stop himself from being stabbed Instead of calling to Brutus he exclaims Vile Casca what does this mean The rest of the struggle is an awkward affair the great Caesar writhing to avoid the blows of his attackers who in their own bungling efforts end up stabbing one another Some say that he fought and resisted all the rest shifting his body to avoid the blows and calling out for help but that when he saw Brutus s sword drawn he covered his face with his robe and submitted And the conspirators themselves were many of them wounded by each other whilst they all levelled their blows at the same person Where Shakespeare s play focuses on the tension and conflict between two of his play s main characters Plutarch s account zeroes in on Caesar s behavior in the course of dying a vi.
