From Abraham Lincoln to Martin Luther King, Jr., from Napoleon to Coco Chanel, readers will encounter such inspiring words to lead by as: It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself. (Eleanor Roosevelt); You do not lead by hitting people over the head--that's assault, not leadership. (Dwight D. Eisenhower); and What you cannot enforce, do not command. (Sophocles). The essential and eloquently expressed principles in this book will motivate readers to lead with passion and compassion and teach them how to identify and achieve what is best for the group.
