Meet Sabriyya

What did you do before joining McChrystal Group?

Prior to joining McChrystal Group, I developed curricula and taught courses at Duke, and conducted research on applied conflict resolution training within the healthcare leader context in Nigeria.

Why did you join McChrystal Group?

I joined McChrystal Group because I wanted to develop as a leader while learning from the experts on leadership.

What has been your proudest moment at McChrystal Group?

My proudest moment occurred after my first project, which was to apply our Red Teaming approach to an acquisition that was being considered by the client. During a follow-up call with the client’s C-suite, the CEO shared that they thought we had delivered exactly what they needed and had blown them away. We were able to listen to the C-suite discuss the insights we provided in the report I had worked with my team to author, and hear as they re-evaluated their decision-making in real-time. It was very fulfilling to know my countless hours of hard work had paid off in an impactful way that managed to change the way the entire leadership team was considering their strategic choice.

What has been your most interesting travel spot with a McChrystal Client?

The most interesting place I have traveled with a client has been Paris, France.
