“I walk slowly but I never walk backward.” Abraham Lincoln
Presidential Leadership explores the common leadership actions in the lives of 21 American Presidents during their years both in and out of office. By pairing the Presidents, Dr. Brent Taylor uncovers the commonality—and sometimes disparity—between the Commanders in Chief and illustrates how this applies to current leadership challenges.
From Lincoln and Nixon, to JFK and Obama, from Trump and Jackson, to Bush and Truman, each chapter extends an invitation into the oval office of two unique administrations. With the familiarity of a historian and experience as a leader, Taylor provides a lively view of some iconic and lesser-known examples of each President’s persona and leadership style, while applying the lessons to modern leaders with wit and wisdom. Each message is designed to supply practical tools and timeless principles of leadership for all leadership styles.
Take time on your own leadership journey to walk in the footsteps of the Presidents and observe their actions that continue to move us forward.
