Why Senior Military Leaders Fail...

Why senior military leaders fail
And what we can learn from their mistakes

By Lt. Col. Donald Drechsler & Col. Charles D. Allen (Ret.)
Armed Forces Journal
July 2009

In the first decade of the 21st century, the U.S. military observed the firings or resignations of the chief of staff of the Air Force, the secretaries of the Army and the Air Force, plus several general officers, including the commander of U.S. Central Command and most recently the senior American commander in Afghanistan.

Why did these smart and otherwise extremely successful senior leaders lose their jobs? Is there something we can learn from their experiences to improve ourselves as leaders and better serve the nation? Assuming that we can learn more from our mistakes than our successes, we may be able to learn by studying senior leaders who have failed in this new era...
