Sharing Information is POWER!

"Information's only valuable if you give it to people with the ability to do something with it." ~ General Stanley McChrystal
In this TED Talks video, Retired General Stanley McChrystal shares his experience with the culture shift from hiding information to sharing information.

Video Takeaways

  • Follow your instincts. Go with your gut and what you've learned.
  • Change your culture from "who needs to know" to "who doesn't know, and we need to tell and tell them as quickly as we can."
  • Create situation awareness rooms.
  • Information gets leaked out, and you aren't going to like it.
  • We are better off if we share information than if we hold it back.
