Description

As commander of the Third Army, General George S. Patton, Jr.'s wartime success inspired the remarkable performance of his troops, and the grudging admiration of his enemies. Having stormed across France and Germany with lightning speed, Patton revealed himself as a courageous warrior, a gifted strategist, an inspiring communicator, a masterful motivator, and, most importantly, a brilliant leader.

Patton On Leadership distills Patton's brilliance into essential lessons every leader must know to win in today's merciless corporate wars.

Vibrant with the earthy wit and wisdom that was Patton's hallmark, these lessons show managers how to develop and project a leadership image, communicate effectively across large organizations, establish clear priorities, build a winning team, mentor future leaders, resolve conflict, sustain optimum performance against all obstacles, and instill the kind of loyalty that inspires consistent outstanding achievement.

In a work equally engaging to current or future managers and history buffs alike, General Patton's leadership in battle is turned into the ultimate manual for victory.

    It will give you insight but not Life changing. A short read.
  • (4/5)
    Great timeless lessons about war and corporate strategy. Love the briefness- I love the lessons about being on the ground and encouraging those who do the real work. And always thinking one step ahead of the competition. And be a good example first. Nice lessons, should be taught at business school or companies.
