What essential leadership lessons do we learn by distilling the actions and ideas of great military commanders such as George Washington, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Colin Powell? The Art of Command demonstrates that great leaders become great through a commitment not only to develop vital skills but also to surmount personal shortcomings. In the second edition of this classic resource, Harry S. Laver, Jeffrey J. Matthews, and the other contributing authors identify eleven core characteristics of highly effective leaders, such as integrity, determination, vision, and charisma, and eleven significant figures in American military history who embody those qualities. Featuring new chapters on transitional leadership, innovative leadership, and authentic leadership, this insightful book offers valuable perspectives on the art of military command in American history.

After World War I, J F C Fuller stated that the three pillars of generalship (meaning good generalship of course) are "courage, creative intelligence, and physical fitness: and the attributes of youth rather than middle age." The study of character traits and leadership principles dominated our thought and leadership teaching methodology during and after World War II, with role playing and case studies used extensively. Current leadership doctrine for the entire Army is prescribed in Field Manual 6-22, Army Leadership, a publication that relies heavily on historical examples for its message. Since "the foundations of Army leadership are firmly grounded in history," senior leaders must have a core of historical knowledge to give them the perspective necessary to solve the leadership and command challenges of today.

36 Strategeme für Manager

Harro von Senger gilt als DER Experte für chinesische Planungskunst - insbesondere für die "36 Strategeme", die er im Westen bekannt gemacht hat. Die 36 Strategeme sind "Techniken der List" in Gestalt von Sprachformeln wie "Das Schaf mit leichter Hand wegführen" oder "Den dürren Baum mit Blüten schmücken". So gut wie jeder Chinese kennt sie und wendet sie an, während ihre Bedeutung hierzulande unterschätzt oder gar ignoriert wird. "In unserem europäischen Kulturkreis müssen wir lernen, listensensibler zu sein und die List nicht von vornherein zu verteufeln, sondern sie als etwas zum Alltag Gehörendes anzuerkennen. ... Im Chinesischen wird übrigens für die Worte List und Weisheit dasselbe Schriftzeichen benutzt." Harro von Senger
