Founding Leadership

Lessons on Business and Personal Leadership From the Men Who Brought You the American Revolution

by Brent Taylor

Great leadership is desperately needed in the world today. History affords many models of strong, effective leadership. To many of us, the leaders of the American Revolution are distant men of myth – stoic, heroic and unknowable. Though we take it for granted that they were brilliant, we rarely ask why. What distinguished them from their fellow citizens … then and now? What practical lessons can they teach us about leadership and about realizing our own career and personal goals?

Leading by example is intimately linked with great leadership. So are traits and skills such as self-awareness, perseverance, clear and persuasive communication, vision-casting, and the ability to implement a vision. Founding Leadership profiles nine of America’s “Founding Fathers,” as well as Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, focusing on how each man used one key leadership tool to advance the dream of an independent and prosperous America … or, in the case of Benedict Arnold, how he squandered these talents in the service of his own ego. Designed for business and personal leadership, this book will challenge you and your organization to effectively lead into the future.
