Eli Broad, philanthropist, reveals his competitive drive, and GeneralFranklin "Buster" Hagenbeck, the retired superintendent of West Point and three-star general, talks about why losing is not an option. Coach John McKissick (with the most wins of any coach in football) explains that the way to achieve big goals is by scoring one win at a time, and Anne Mulcahy, former CEO of Xerox, shows how to hand over the reins to ensure a smooth leadership transition.
