Harry S. Truman On Leadership

Book - 2004
Rate this:
Harry Truman had been vice president for less than a year when he inherited the White House in 1945. With little preparation, he masterfully guided the nation through the last days of World War II, the Marshall Plan, and the war in Korea. The humble, plainspoken man known for the adage “The buck stops here” took on the challenges the way he knew best—head on.

Bestselling author Alan Axelrod offers a fascinating look at the man who made some of the most difficult decisions of the last century, through more than 150 lessons from Truman’s life and career. Divided among twelve chapters such as “Bringing People Together,” “The Right Thing,” “Hell: Giving and Getting,” and “Facts of the Matter,” these concise principles can be used by modern-day managers in their day-to-day quest for business success. Inspirational and practical, When the Buck Stops with You is sure to join Axelrod’s other works as a must-have volume on leadership.
