Executive Lessons from the Bully Pulpit
Theodore Roosevelt, the youngest man ever to become president, was a leader of uncommon strength who, through the sheer force of his extraordinary will, turned America into a modern world power. Throughout his remarkable life he surmounted challenges that would have destroyed lesser men. He overcame a sickly boyhood, conquered enemy troops on the battlefield, and took an assassin's bullet with scarcely a flinch. His timeless leadership wisdom is a splendid model for business executives and managers struggling to master today's turbulent marketplace.
"Filled with invaluable lessons for twenty-first century leaders." — John C. Maxwell author of The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership.
In Theodore Roosevelt on Leadership, you will meet a man whose physical strength and courage were an inspiration to those he led. Author James Strock uncovers the unparalleled leadership skills that Roosevelt used to achieve victory during the Spanish-American War, build the Panama Canal, bust corporate trusts, wave the "big stick" of America's growing military might, and turn the historically weak presidency into the "bully pulpit." You will also discover a man who constantly broke customs and defied expectations. TR was the only president to earn the Medal of Honor for valor in war and the first to win the Nobel Peace Prize. He led the modern environmental movement, wrote books and essays on every conceivable topic, and was a husband and father of touching tenderness and dedication.
Theodore Roosevelt triumphed over obstacles that business leaders face every day. Guided by his magnificent example, so can you.
