Overview

The United States Army is one of the most complex, best-run organizations in the world, and central to the Army’s success are strong leadership and exceptional leadership development. Army leaders must be able to act decisively and effectively in challenging situations. But the Army, despite its organizational structure, does not train leaders in a hierarchical manner. Dispersed leadership is the key to the success of the Army leadership model.

Now, for the first time, you can have access to the Army’s successful leadership philosophy and the principles that are outlined in the official Army leadership manual. Be, Know, Do makes this critical information available to civilian leaders in all sectors–business, government, and nonprofit–and gives them the guidelines they need to create an organization in which leadership thrives.

At the heart of the book is the Army’s leadership framework, a clear and expressive description of what leaders must be, know, and do in order to fulfill their responsibilities. This framework is adapted to fit the work of leaders in private, nonprofit, and public organizations who grapple with new and diverse challenges on a daily basis. Be, Know, Do also shows you how to put into place the three levels of leadership: direct, organizational, and strategic.

Be, Know, Do will be your handbook for developing a vital organization in which everyone is a leader and leadership is dispersed through every level of the organization.
