Summary
The Founding Fathers on Leadership takes you into the world of "team leaders" Thomas Paine, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison as they mapped strategy, forged consensus, picked the right staff people - such heretofore unproven talents as Lafayette and John Paul Jones - and made crucial decisions and daring choices. From Washington's recapture of Boston - achieved through intimidating, outmaneuvering, and outsmarting the British - to Benjamin Franklin's pivotal mission to Paris in search of a strategic alliance, Donald T. Phillips shows how these men faced challenges and dissension in their own ranks with an enlightened vision from which they would not stray. And just as risk-taking entrepreneurs on the business battlefield today must learn to consolidate their gains, the Founding Fathers faced fierce new battles after they had won the War of Independence, leading to the Constitutional Convention of 1787. A book that is as entertaining as it is insightful, The Founding Fathers on Leadership demonstrates some of the essential maxims for successful leadership and teamwork, such as rally every member of the organization to one common cause; turn an unsuccessful event into a clarion call for action; act as an agent of change for the people you manage; and pass the torch of leadership to the next generation. A profile of the great American success story in the making, this is a book that will inspire you to make your own American success story come true today
