  • By Geoff Loftus
$19.79
($24.99)

"A novel, intriguing--and more importantly--highly instructive approach enabling us to truly grasp fundamental management principles. In the person of Dwight Eisenhower planning and executing the D-Day landings and the subsequent liberation of Europe, these basic concepts are vividly brought to life. As Loftus rightly observes, no CEO ever faced a more daunting, pressure-filled, obstacle-laden mission than did Ike. Perfect reading for these turbulent times." --Steve Forbes, Chairman & CEO, Forbes Media

"Geoff Loftus has written an intriguing and highly useful book on Dwight Eisenhower's extraordinary ability as a leader. If you liked Ike before, you'll like him even more now. And you'll be grateful to Geoff Loftus." --Christopher Buckley, author of Boomsday and Thank You for Smoking

"In Lead Like Ike, Geoff Loftus provides keen insights on management lessons drawn from one of the greatest battlefields in military history. The lessons may appear simple, but it's the simplest management principles that we often forget: Listen to your people. Set your vision. Be consistent about your message. Let your managers manage." --Salvatore J. Vitale, Senior Vice President, The Conference Board

Who was the greatest CEO of the 20th century? A persuasive case can be made for General Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower, who undertook history's most harrowing executive assignment: Operation Overlord, the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe on June 6, 1944. In Lead Like Ike, business journalist and communications guru Geoff Loftus weaves a fly on-the-wall narrative from Ike's perspective as supreme allied commander overseeing the Normandy invasion. While swept into a gripping story that honors the sacrifice of all who fought and died on D-Day, you'll also be drawn to a cache of battle-tested strategies and tactics with direct applications to modern-day business leadership.
