The Future of Strategic Military Leadership

TEDTalk. Murphy Danahy is a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. As a Cadet at the U.S. Military Academy, he majored in Psychology and was particularly interested in how U.S. Army Leadership Development Models have changed over time. He often applied psychological theories to normative analyses on the Army’s leadership evaluation methods. In this video, he proposes that we must shift our paradigms about what makes a “good” military leader, and that failing to do so may cause us to lose our next big war. Utilizing several psychological studies about the way that people are hard wired to think, Danahy believes that he has found the key to improving military recruiting and retention programs.
