Overview

Move over Shakespeare, the Virgin Queen has something to say about leadership…

In her forty-five year rule, Elizabeth I presided over one of the most dynamic political and cultural transitions in the history of the world. Her remarkable achievements stemmed from unsurpassed leadership ability, clear vision and a passionate belief in her nation and its people. As ruler, strategist, warrior, and woman, she was unmatched.

So, what can today's enterprising women and men of industry learn from Elizabeth I?

For starters, how to remake a business: When she ascended the throne, England was impoverished, weak and demoralized. With Elizabeth at the helm, it was a thriving nation with a sense of direction and destiny. And, how to improve one's brand: She raised England's standing in the international community, defying Spain and frustrating Philip's attempts to take over England and France. Or even, how to establish a well-rounded organization: Elizabeth I encouraged the culture that produced England's Golden Age of literature, theatre and music. You'll even read about Queen Bess on team building: She surrounded herself with brilliant, loyal counselors who respected her authority and feared her wrath. And, not to mention-how to dress for success, don a queen-like attitude, and remain confident and in-charge in the face of constant peril.

Leadership Secrets of Elizabeth I introduces a new generation of readers to her wisdom, style, and legendary intellect. With amusing bits of history straight from the Queen's court, Shaun O'L. Higgins and Pamela Gilberd reveal the qualities that make Her Majesty a timeless role model. Rife with wit and wisdom, this book also offers insight from contemporary women who have followed in her footsteps, from Kim Campbell, Canada's First Woman Prime Minister; to Patricia Ireland, President of the National Organization for Women; and Carol Stephenson, CEO of Lucent Technology in Canada.

Provocative and practical, Elizabeth I will fascinate and entertain managers, history buffs, and anyone who hopes to emulate the power and dynamism of the captivating Virgin Queen.
