In FBI terms, leaders who pick up their own brass casings at the firing range are more effective than those who expect someone else to do it for them.To those at the Bureau, this small action speaks louder than words and is largely indicative of a person's overall management style.Through a host of real-life FBI stories, from the front lines to the back offices, Pick Up Your Own Brass: Leadership the FBI Way reveals the leadership qualities that have enabled the Bureau to successfully navigate through a century of war, espionage, organized crime, terrorism, fraud, and corruption. Offering fifty essential leadership lessons based off challenges that FBI officials have faced over the course of their careers, this book can help anyone-established leaders, aspiring leaders, minority leaders, and even "accidental executives" who find themselves managing more than they imagined-build a culture of leadership.
