Insights for Coaches from Counterinsurgency Thinking

Leave a comment

David Kilcullen was a guest on Radio National’s PM program on 28 June. A transcript of his interview can be found here.

I wrote about David’s work last year after I discovered his writing about the accidental guerilla.

He has written a new book on Counterinsurgency.

Many years ago coaches were reading Sun Tzu’s The Art of War. This review of Counterinsurgency indicates why David Kilcullen’s work might be of interest to coaches now. Two of the themes that will be of interest are David’s thoughts on training and trusting leaders and building build trusted networks.
