From the Author:

Six years ago, an intriguing title caught my eye as I was killing time at an airport bookstore. Lincoln on Leadership, by Donald T. Phillips, seemed to be a clever twist on the books I studied as a faculty member at the Academy of Leadership at the University of Maryland. I bought it as a quick, informative read, and I wasn’t disappointed. Only later did I find out that the book had launched a small industry of similar titles in the business leadership book genre.

As a historian and leadership educator, I thought Phillips did a terrific job of weaving Lincoln stories and quotes around principles of leadership for today’s executives. But I wanted something more. My area of expertise is women’s leadership, particularly in politics and business. Surely there were some women leaders who could offer leadership wisdom, I thought. So I started searching the book lists. I found Patton on Leadership, Robert E. Lee, Ulysses S. Grant, Jesus, Churchill, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., Ernest Shackleton, the Founding Fathers, and Ronald Reagan. But the only woman in the group was Elizabeth I. That’s how this book was born.

Eleanor Roosevelt led me to reflect on my leadership, focus on my passion, and get "fired up" about acting on it. I’d like to think that, if she were here, she would see this book as an acknowledgment of her leadership, a tribute to her accomplishments, and a heartfelt thank you.
