Book Review - Lessons in Leadership From the Greatest Generation
About the Book
Inspirational anecdotes from exceptional Americans. Ten leadership lessons are taught here through the dramatic true stories of American men and women in World War II. From Dwight D. Eisenhower and Chester Nimitz to everyday Americans who rose to leadership during the world's greatest war, these stories reflect the core values of this remarkable generation. With these inspiring accounts, today's managers and leaders will learn essential leadership tactics, such as having a vision, being a self-starter, taking care of your people, and leading by example.
My Take on the Book
The author of this book uses amazing true to life stories from earlier in the 20th century to show great examples of leaders doing remarkable things in trying times. One of the things that really sets this book apart is how the book weaves a tapestry of stories together to share leadership principles that definitely stand the test of time.
I was impressed with the wide array of stories within this book and how well they illustrate leadership principles that I want to see in my own employees. It just goes to show that the "Greatest Generation" brought forth great ideas and values that we all can learn from - and this book shares this with all of us!
This was a short but compelling book that all should read!
