News & Opinion: Lessons from the Military

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 3:15 PM – Filed under: Leadership & Strategy

Richard Patcher writes business book reviews for the Miami Herald. His March 22 review was titled "Is war a good metaphor for business?". In the review, he looks at Be Know Do: Leadership the Army Way, No Excuse Leadership: Lessons from the U.S. Army's Elite Rangers, The Marine Corps Way: Using Maneuver Warfare to Lead a Winning Organization, and Business as War: Battling for Competitive Advantage.
The review made me think of It's Your Ship by Michael Abrashoff.
And then I thought I better come up with an Air Force inspired leadership book to properly represent all branches. Check out Boyd: The Fighter Pilot Who Changed the Art of War by Robert Coram.
