9781601940285: Lincoln Speaks to Leaders: 20 Powerful Lessons for Today's Leaders from America's 16th President

What if you could get leadership advice directly from the man universally recognized as one of America's most admired presidents, Abraham Lincoln himself? And then what if you could hear from a well-known contemporary marketplace leader about functional ways to apply those lessons today? In this unique book, you'll be able to do just that, thanks to the creative lessons offered by Lincoln writer, actor, and playwright Gene Griessman. To drive the lessons home, NBA executive Pat Williams offers his trademark wisdom, humor, and practical insight based on his rich and varied personal experiences. If you want your leadership life to pop in a way that spells resounding success, make sure this book is on your shelf, easily within reach. You'll want to refer to it again and again.

About the Author:

Gene Griessman, PhD, is a renowned Lincoln portrayer, an award-winning TV host, and author. He is widely recognized for his expertise on leadership topics.



Pat Williams is the senior vice president of the NBA's Orlando Magic. Also one of America's top motivational, inspirational and humorous speakers, he has addressed employees from many of the Fortune 500 companies and the Million Dollar Round Table.

Peggy Matthews Rose (Lake Forest, CA) has partnered with Pat Williams on the book ""Read for your Life"" and is currently working with Williams and Dr. Eugene Griessman on ""Leadership the Lincoln Way"".

From Publishers Weekly:

Though the unofficial Lincoln Bicentennial Publish-palooza is a crowded field, this stultifying leadership primer may be the most egregious entry to date. Switching off writing duties, Griessman (author and Lincoln portrayer) and Williams (public speaker and senior VP of the NBA's Orlando Magic) manage in 20 chapters to nullify the power of Lincoln's writing, reduce his accomplishments to a checklist of office to-dos, and yoke the 16th president's voice to tired self-help-speak like, "If you want to be successful... you must will that success into existence." Frequent, tone-deaf passages written by Griessman in Lincoln's voice aren't helped by his professional experience; in-character lines include "My name is Lincoln-Abraham Lincoln. And I've been dead for well over a century"; "I am a possibility thinker"; and "I began to learn to value diversity in the little settlements of the frontier." (Excerpts from Lincoln's own writing serve only to show up Greissman's act.) Williams, meanwhile, recounts stories from the front offices of various basketball teams, bizarrely synthesizing Lincoln's ideas with his own advice about visualization, thinking things through, and staying positive. Like unwelcome carpetbaggers in the reconstruction South, these authors seem less interested in spreading the word of Lincoln than in exploiting his moment.
