Abstract:

"Business has often been likened to war. Given their similarities, what better way to learn about strategic business leadership than from the battlefield triumphs - and catastrophes - of America's greatest conflict, the Civil War? In Leadership Lessons from the Civil War, former CEO and telecommunications leader Tom Wheeler distills basic leadership strategies used in the Civil War into nine specific lessons - illustrated with in-depth stories of battlefield decisions - that can help guide business leaders today." "In the course of the book, Wheeler recounts his own experiences in the telecommunications industry, using the war stories of such media moguls as Craig McCaw, Ted Turner, and Gerald Levin as examples of modern-day Stonewall Jacksons and Jeb Stuarts who apply these strategic lessons to today's corporate battles."--Jacket.
