Lead Like Ike: Ten Business Strategies from the CEO of D-Day

Loftus, Geoff (Author)


A novel, intriguing and more importantly highly instructive approach enabling us to truly grasp fundamental management principles. In the person of Dwight Eisenhower planning and executing the D-Day landings and the subsequent liberation of Europe, these basic concepts are vividly brought to life. As Loftus rightly observes, no CEO ever faced a more daunting, pressure-filled, obstacle-laden mission than did Ike. Perfect reading for these turbulent times. Steve Forbes, Chairman & CEO, Forbes Media

The lessons may appear simple, but it s the simplest management principles that we often forget: Listen to your people. Set your vision. Be consistent about your message. Let your managers manage. Salvatore J. Vitale, Senior Vice President, The Conference Board
