Ronald Reagan was elected to lead a dispirited country that had lost its way. Overseas, governments tottered in the face of an expansive Soviet empire, and U.S. citizens fell prey to cold-blooded terrorists. At home, a listless economy produced more unemployment than jobs, and a demoralized military hunkered down in timidity. America had become a land of limits rather than of opportunity.
"If you measure leadership of the American presidency in terms of changing the mindset of multiple constituencies, as I do, then Ronald Reagan will be regarded as one of the greatest presidents of this century. Finally, we have a terrific book on Reagan and his uncanny and important ability to lead."
— Warren Bennis, coauthor of Leaders and author of Organizing Genius
How Reagan turned the country around is an inspiration for leaders everywhere. This remarkable book gives you the keys to his leadership skills and shows how they can be transferred seamlessly to today's business world.
Based on new interviews with some of Reagan's closest advisers, Reagan on Leadership presents an inside look into the day-to-day executive style of one of our century's most successful statesmen. You learn his secrets of management success, such as how to hire the right people, negotiate from strength, move an audience, overcome failure, and, perhaps most important, communicate an inspiring vision.
With wit and insight, author James Strock captures the essence of a man who changed the course of history. The Reagan you meet here was a leader of uncanny strength, whose steely determination never flagged, not even when he suffered political setbacks, not even when he took a bullet in the chest. Ronald Reagan triumphed over challenges people in business face every day. With this book as your guide, so can you.
