Overview

This book captures over 300 years of cumulative leadership experience through in-depth, personal interviews with 11 retired military flag officers who now serve as business executives. They speak candidly about the challenges that leaders face in today's fast-paced business environment. They offer their own views on how to raise up the next generation of leaders, how to lead in the current viral age of social media, and provide their own personal reflections on what they would have changed, knowing what they know today.

They include a former Chief Information Officer for the U.S. Army, a former commander of "Patton's 3rd Army", and an inductee into the West Point Army Sports Hall of Fame. Capturing their experiences as military and civilian leaders brings a rich and in-depth view of the challenges and issues that leaders face. This, combined with their own philosophies and approaches, will provide the reader with a rich and cogent set of leadership principles and best practices that will benefit both those in the military and in the private sector.
