'In business, if you make bad decisions, people lose money and perhaps jobs,' according to an Army captain who graduated from West Point. 'In the military, if you make bad decisions...people can die.' In that light, these leadership lessons from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point seem highly credible. After all, most fields of endeavor do not involve life-and-death consequences, but being in the military is not an ordinary profession. This grim truth not only requires but demands 'competent' military leaders, as author Jim Collins discusses in his foreword to this compilation edited by Major Doug Crandall. We appreciate these valuable leadership lessons and their source. The Leader to Leader Institute, formerly the Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management, publishes a comprehensive series of leadership books, 21 of which have been printed in 28 languages. So, when the Institute describes this book as 'one of the most important...published in our 16 years,' it merits a respectful look.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
