We tend to think about ‘strategic leaders’ as people who were successful…. But to me, it is the content of their goals that matter.

WAR ROOM welcomes Dr. Sarah Sewall, former Undersecretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy and Human Rights under the Obama administration and the inaugural Deputy Assistance Secretary of Defense for Peacekeeping and Peace Enforcement Policy. Dr. Sewell was a guest speaker at the U.S. Army War College’s annual Strategy Conference, which explored Strategic Leadership in 2030. In this interview with WAR ROOM Social Media Editor Buck Haberichter, Dr. Sewell provides her perspectives on those traits that separate the great strategic leaders from others, and in the process dispels some popular misconceptions about what it means to be a great strategic leader.



Dr. Sarah Sewall is the Speyer Family Foundation Distinguished Scholar | Henry A. Kissinger Center for Global Affairs. Buck Haberichter is the Social Media Editor for WAR ROOM. The views expressed in this presentation are those of the speakers and do not necessarily reflect those of the U.S. Army War College, U.S. Army, or Department of Defense.
