Ronald Reagan looms large as one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century—arguably, of American history. As the nation enters the 21st century, his example of leadership continues to resonate.
Reagan was elected to the presidency in a time when America was dispirited and had lost its way. Overseas, governments tottered in the face of an expansive Soviet empire, and U.S. citizens fell prey to cold-blooded terrorists. At home, a listless economy produced more unemployment than jobs, and a demoralized military hunkered down in timidity. America was declining into a land of limits rather than opportunity.
How Reagan turned the country around is an inspiration to leaders everywhere. This remarkable book gives you the keys to his leadership skills, and shows how they can be transferred seamlessly into any setting—from business to government and the military—where leadership can be decisive.
This edition is updated, with a powerful foreword by legendary management thought leader Tom Peters, as well as a new readers’ note.
Reagan on Leadership presents an inside look at the day-to-day executive style of one of the most effective leaders of the modern era.
Ronald Reagan transformed himself, then our nation—and, ultimately, our world. With his example as your guide, you, too, can change your world.
