What Does It Take To Be A Leader?
As thoughts turn to the upcoming presidential election, many might be considering what it takes to be a leader. One person who has successfully led by example is General Colin Powell. In his new book, , It Worked for Me in Life and Leadership (Harper; May 2012), shares his insight into leadership qualities.
You don’t have to be a military or history buff to be interested in what Colin Powell has to say. This book is neither a biography nor a true memoir. Rather, it is words of wisdom learned from life lessons through public service in his positions in the military and diplomatic worlds across four presidential administrations.
No matter whether you are just starting a new career or choosing your next passage in life, you will be inspired by his personal stories and come away with tips for leading others or reality checking your own character.
