Based on the findings in recently released archive papers and letters, as well as extensive library and historical resources, Alan Axelrod offers a compelling profile of the remarkable leadership discipline of a general often called a “military CEO.” In fascinating detail, Axelrod reveals that Ike was more than a great military leader; he was also a great executive who could—and did—write a reassuring letter to the mother of a solider one moment and make decisions impacting millions of lives the next.

Follow Ike's path as Supreme Commander from the invasion of North Africa to victory in Europe and learn the lessons of great leadership along the way, including:

The nature of leadership

Managing detail without sacrificing the “big picture”

Ensuring follow-through to execution

Building a team

Converting conflict into common cause

Getting the facts and making plans

Mentoring, motivating, and inspiring

Intelligence can be defined as the ability to observe seemingly nonexistent patterns.
