9781481783880: The Overlord Effect: Emergent Leadership Style at the D-Day Invasion

The Overlord Effect is a historically based leadership review that combines the accounts of Veterans of the Normandy Campaign of World War II and presents a conversation about their experiences with the leadership theories that have become part of today"s conversation on the subject in the military, academics, and business. The Normandy Invasion was one of the most complex and successful military campaigns in history. The preparation for this event took years of planning and training. It required leaders at every level to demonstrate exemplary leadership in a compressed space and time that called for decisions to be made in an instant, for leaders to act with courage and character, and for both followers and leaders to accomplish any mission regardless of the personal cost. The Overlord Effect takes the snapshots of the critical experiences of leaders at every level of the Allied Invasion Force and reviews their actions and places them into understandable, thought provoking insights that will help leaders in any discipline respond better to challenges. The work also presents Dr. Pierce's theory on Emergent Leadership During Crisis (ELDC), and discusses ways that the leaders and professionals of today can use it to help themselves understand their own leadership experience, as well as to develop future leaders in the workplace.

About the Author:

Dr. Michael D. Pierce is a retired Army Officer. He spent several years studying the battlefield leadership of the Veterans of the Normandy Campaign of World War II. He has taken the first hand accounts of these veterans and distilled them into the first book that describes their experiences in the context of current leadership theory. His first hand experiences as a leader include leading soldiers in Company Command, at a combat traiing center, deployment to combat operational areas, and working directly with senior military Flag Officers. Dr. Pierce has leveraged these qualifications into a successful civilian career. He is affiliated with both the University of Oklahoma and the University of Phoenix as a Professor of Organizational Leadership, and serves as Director of operations for a German-American corporation in Germany. He is also the founder and Chief Executive Officer of New Horizons for Heroes, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping healing heroes make a successful transition to civilian life after their military service. Dr. Pierce lives near Heidleberg, Germany. His interests include studying medieval history and international communications.
