Lead On: A Practical Guide to Leadershipby Dave Oliver
Civilian managers will find that many of the principles
Informal, even conversational in style, Lead On! is nevertheless a serious handbook where aspiring leaders can learn how to achieve seemingly impossible goals. The book is replete with examples from the author's experience and from the history of the nuclear navy, where the price of failure can be death.
Civilian managers will find that many of the principles discussed here can be employed with profit in private industry. The old school of motivation by coercion never accomplished much with submarine sailors, who are among the navy's elite, and the author has found that what works with this new breed of marinertechnician can be of enormous value in dealing with the members of an entrepreneurial organization.
