Dwight D. “Ike” Eisenhower, arguably the most important leader from World War II, was not the best military tactician, nor the best speaker, nor the most dynamic personality. Yet he took the Allied Forces that were reeling from defeat after defeat and led them to victory over the world’s most powerful military. Not only did he have to lead his own staff, but he had to manage the stormy personalities of Churchill, Roosevelt, de Gaulle and Generals Montgomery and Patton, and somehow mold them all into a powerful coalition. How did he accomplish all this? By becoming a great LEADER. Through his three greatest talents: skillful diplomacy, the ability to plan, and the power to inspire success in others, he pulled together an unlikely coalition of nations and defeated Nazism. His methods of leadership are as effective in the business environment today as they were in the battlefields and war rooms sixty years ago. This session will teach the practical leadership lessons from Eisenhower’s experience.
