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 Be Know Do 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 where leadership thrives.

I'm a real fan of leadership books, and this is one of the best I've read. I just got this book a few days ago, and blazed right through it. It's a quick read, concise, but packed with good stuff. The cover is a bit misleading. This is NOT an adaptation of the Army Leadership Manual. The authors interpret the manual and explain how the Army's leadership principles apply all the time, everywhere-in business as well as the military. In the Army, leaders need to lead men into battle, and keep them cohesive in the face of danger and death. How do you do that? It's not about shouting orders, the book makes clear. It's about taking responsibility and leading from the front, sharing risks with your people, and forging your own character so that you deserve to lead. This book shows you how to do that, and how that kind of leadership works just as well in business. It doesn't make this kind of leadership sound easy, because its not. But it does show that if you're willing to do the work and adopt the discipline, you can be a leader. There is nothing political about the book, but when I finished reading it, I couldn't help thinking that the current occupant of the White House should read it. Then he would know what REAL leadership is all about.
