Leader's Mentor: Inspiration from the World's Most Effective Leaders by Ian Jackman

What Makes a Leader?

“Leadership is the thing that wins battles. I have it but I’ll be damned if I can define it.” –General George S. Patton

Leadership is often daunting. Because every situation is different, there is no foolproof, one-size-fits-all approach to learning the ropes. Instead there are a dizzying number of competing ideas and theories which you may find contradictory. The Leader’s Mentor offers a guide through the maze … and also offers pointers as you undertake the leadership learning process.
–FROM THE INTRODUCTION

Leadership skills can be learned and the best teachers are the leaders themselves. Drawing on the experiences of leaders in all fields of human endeavor and also the scholarship of leadership experts, The Leader’s Mentor offers inspiration and advice for anyone taking on a leadership role.

INSPIRATION FROM MORE THAN 200 LEADERS AND VISIONARIES, INCLUDING:

Rosa Parks
Jack Welch
Oprah Winfrey
The men of Omaha Beach
Eleanor Roosevelt
Winston Churchill
Mahatma Gandhi
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Vince Lombardi
