Table of Contents

Rudolph Giuliani demonstrates in Leadership how the leadership skills he practices can be employed successfully by anyone who has to run anything.

In detailing his principles of leadership, Giuliani tells captivating stories that are personal as well as prescriptive: how he learned the importance of staying calm in the face of attack from his father's boxing lessons - as well as the need to stand up to bullies; how a love of reading was early instilled in him by his mother and grew into a determination to master new subjects, and not rely only on the word of experts; how, in his recent fight with prostate cancer, learning to make decisions at the right time and with the right information reflected decision-making on a larger scale.

A leader, Giuliani writes, must develop strong beliefs, articulate and act on those beliefs, and be held accountable for the results - principles he illustrates with candor and courage throughout this important and timely audiobook. He never knew that the qualities he describes would be put to the awful test of September 11, he says; but he never doubted that they would prevail.
