The United States Army is one of the most complex, best run organizations in the world, and central to the Army's success are strong leadership and exceptional leadership development. Army leaders must be able to act decisively and effectively in challenging situations. But the Army, despite its organizational structure, does not train leaders in a hierarchical manner. Dispersed leadership is the key to the success of the Army leadership model.

Now, for the first time, you can have access to the Army's successful leadership philosophy and the principles that are outlined in Be Know Do the official Army Leadership Manual. Be Know Do makes this critical information available to civilian leaders in all sectors--business, government, and nonprofit--and gives them the guidelines they need to create an organization where leadership thrives.

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Be * Know * Do

"The Army does two things each and every day: it trains its soldiers, and it grows them into leaders. The principles and practices of effective leadership that make the United States Army the greatest landforce in the world are relevant, as well, to civilian organizations–businesses, nonprofit organizations, and governmental agencies."
from the Introduction by Frances Hesselbein and General Eric K. Shinseki (USA Ret.)

"The Army trains and develops more leaders than do all other institutions together–and with a lower casualty rate. Be, Know, Do shows how this is being done–and how it can be adapted by the nonmilitary: businesses, colleges and universities, nonprofits, and churches."
Peter F. Drucker

"So you want to be a leader? Be, Know, Do tells you how, through an insightful combination of lessons from the Army’s battle-focused training manual and a series of organizational leadership case studies."
Regina E. Herzlinger, professor, Harvard Business School, and mother of Captain Alexander Herzlinger, U.S. Army Infantry

"Great leaders develop leaders at all levels who lead with integrity and values, are able to take action, and can make things happen. This book shows us how the very successful U.S. Army leadership development principles, be, know, do, have built one of the world’s most successful leadership pipelines. Anyone who wants to lead well and develop leadership at all levels should read this book."
Noel M. Tichy, professor, University of Michigan Business School, and author of The Cycle of Leadership (with Nancy Cardwell)
