this week defense secretary james mattis was granted authority to set those levels to increase troops. retired four-star stanley mcchrystal commanded american and international forces in afghanistan. he also served as commander of the joint special operations command. mcchrystal was tasked with re-imagining the battlefield of the middle east. he outlined how he did that in his 2015 bestseller "team of teams." >> fussell has followed that up with a book of his own. the book is called "one mission: how leaders build a team of teams." the bookses abo is about applyio anyone in the field. >> there's concern around the world. give me a sense because you think of national security, yo think about this country and the timely converon
8:34 am
what was your reaction when you watched that yesterday and what we need to be thinking about. >> well, i think like everybody else. it's horror at what happened but it's the hope that it starts a national conversation about a number of issues. one is about partisanship, conversation, and another is about why so many people are being killed by guns in our people. i think we need thoughtful people to come together and take on a tough issue. >> that's what struck me yesterday. we've been reporting on it all morning. 50 toe 100 shots. when you hear the gunshots and how long it took. as a navy s.e.a.l., you know the sound. what were you thinking when you looked at that and what it all means? >> obviously sympathy for the folks and the families. >> of course. >> and broader problem here, which i think stan just identified. this is increasing and we have to get our hands around this issue. and for people who haven't been exposed to that befo
8:35 am
life-changing moment they'll wrestle with for years. >> what sort of leadership do you need and lessons can be taken from the book? >> the first is it's not just about a single leader. it's about a communitiet when we come together, we get more brains involved, wisdom involved, different perspectives, and we can have some kind of consensus and support. so if we always look for a single iconic person, we'll look for a mistake. >> you write about a leadership mikt. what is that in. >> we want to look for one person who will lead us through tough times. we saw that before. we've got the right general in place. >> we always heard in business you can only have one leader. >> what they've always dunld and what's more important than ever is they create teams that can connect. they did that for us in the military. it's
8:36 am
politics. >> leadership leadership is leadership, whether it's in the military, whether it's in business, whether it's in politic sthoos that's right. that's right. >> what are the core principle os thereafter kind of leadership? >> well, in today's world i think it's more important thanner that leaders that are close to these very different problems, they're being driven by interconnected problems. leaders have to empower those. that's what worked for us in the service and that's what we see working well in the industry as folks start to apply that sort of mod >> what did you take that you learned on the battlefield because most of us don't have your skills or your skills in general. we're not navy s.e.a.l.s and we're not equipped to do the things that we do. there are things on the battlefield that can really translate into business. >> i've been out of service for five years and i've been constantly impressed. there's great
8:37 am
people in those organizations that want to do great things. they want to be part of something that has teamer meaning. that was critical to us in terms of how special operations worked and i think there are several indications. >> admiral mccraven was here. he talked about his book, lessons he learn and it starts with making your bed. one thing about navy s.e.a.l.s is you're often surprised by those who make the cut. are you surprised? >> it really is interesting. you'll have someone who finished an iron man triathlon who can't make it to second training and a kid from iowa who's never seen the ocean who made it as a top graduate. so it's about inner character. >> what did you see in him, general? one of your favorite words, charlie, intellectually curious. there was something that stood
8:38 am
>> when i was first commanding, chris was asking different questions. he was asking big questions. he was asking how the pieces fit together, not about the focused narrow think things and that makes an immediate impression. >> one thing about the secretary of defense, mattis. the president has seemed to have given him lots of thofrmt is that a good thing or do we need to be reminded that the heart of the american system is civilian control? >> i think it's a good thing to empower is up back cousubordina. the american people ultimately still have ownership of those decisions. so it has to be a melded system in which civilians and military leaders together arrive at right decisions but also prosecute policies that everybody supports, that everybody understands ultimately. the men agree going
8:39 am
policy is set, we all have the idea to carry on. >> where should troop levels be many. >> it's hard to say. i would defer what jim matusz and mcnichols on ground are recommending. but i think we need to ask ourselves, if we sent more troops and that doesn't solve the problem or make the change we hope, what will we do then? that's the question nation needs to ask itself about its long-term things in afghanistan and what we hope to achieve. >> thank you so much. good to see you do. >> food goode to see the two of you. thank you so much. the name of the book is "one mission." it's on sale now, wherever you like to buy your book. bestseller malcolm gladwell says he's made his podcast even weirder. his thoughts on forgotten events including the rec

question using the private golf courses of l.a. as an example. how is privilege protected and enshrined as a society. et's a fascinating example of a small group of very wealthy people have managed to essentially not pay any property taxes for generations on these huge golf courses in the middle of city. >> and no one else gets to play on it. >> and l.a. is a city that has one of the fewest amount of parkland of any major american city. it is under parked. and so i would go to l.a. and i would be confronted by this weird fact which is i'm a runner. there's nowhere to run in l.a., and yet there are these 100-aker dub there are subscription or seven with chain link fences that and you report that nobody was on the course. why can't you go and walk around shoo that's how i got thinking how privilege gets embedded

et's one of those -- what i'm trying to do with the podcast is use these kind of a very seemingly lighthearted questions to examine much more important questions. >> because of the bizarre case. it becomes a jumping off point to talk to landscape architects, to go anywhere you want to go. >> there was a moment when e was making this episode where i thought, i need to talk a philosoph philosopher. h is getting so complicated. i called a guy at the university of washington, mark cohen, who's so much fun. it was one of those things you can do in a podcast. you know, there's no rules. if you want to talk to a philosopher, you can talk to a philosophy. that's what i love about the forum. >> talk about what you learned about the ceos who play golf and what their companies
8:47 am
>> there's an economist named lee bickerstaff who did this lovely work. if you're a serious golfer, you post your scores on the usga's website so you can calculate your handy cape. what he did is looked at all the people who posted their scores and matched it to a list of ceos of public companies and was able to figure out how much ceos play golf and then he was abe to figure out what effect does playing golf have on the performance of your company. and first of all he showed that ceos play an astonishing amount of golf and the more you play, the worst your company does. at a shareholders ming they should stand up. >> do you think, therefore, the country did badly because president obama loved to play golf? >> no. i would say this. i would be happy if presidents as a group played less golf and spent more time mastering the
8:48 am
details of their presidency. but i have nothing against people doing sports for recreation. my problem is when an addiction to a certain sport affects the rest of us and affects the citizens of los angeles. they don't have any place to go. the there's no park space for them to go. >> i agree with what you're saying. the yofd people to get outside and run or play golf and just do something in the complex world today, that's a very good thing. >> i'm not going disagree about that. >> you also did something about mcdonald's. it broke your heart. first i was stunned you eat mcdonald's. >> after his run. >> after your run. there was something that broke your heart in 1990. >> they changed the recipe for the french fries. those of us who remember, they used to be in
8:49 am
that's why you went to mcdonald's. they were the most incredible fries you've ever eaten. and they're not anymore for a reason. that is mcdonald's changed formula on july 23rd, 1990. and i think that formula change was catastrophic. >> and you brought in millennials to do a blind test and they picked old fries. >> i went to america's r & d house to make me fries the old way and new way and we did a blind test. >> the old way was 100%. >> there's no distinction. >> malcolm glad well. it's available now. can hear more of "cbs this morning" on our podcast as well. find them on itunes and apples ipodcast. you're watching "cbs this morning." we thank malcolm
