Summary: Winston Churchill is universally recognized as one of the 20th century's great political leaders and his words ring just as true in the world of commerce. A wise, witty, and inspiring leader, Churchill ran Great Britain like a great corporation.

Churchill on Leadership demonstrates that the principles that guided Churchill ably translate to private industry today. Author Steven F. Hayward gives strong evidence that, if you remove Churchill from his politica
l context, he would have the resume to be among the great business leaders of any age. Churchill:
  • was a financier (as chancellor of the Exechequer) and labor negotiator (as home secretary),
  • managed a large transportation network (as head of the British Navy) and far-flung property holdings (as colonial secretary),
  • persevered through bankruptcies and other financial disasters,
  • conceived and introduced innovative new products over the opposition of his colleagues, and reorganized major production operations in the midst of crisis.
With wit and insight, Hayward reveals Churchill's secrets for business success from assembling and inspiring a first-rate team to preparing a wise budget, from communicating a vision to structuring effective meetings, from acting decisively to rebounding from a failure. Laced with epochal events from the historical stage and enlivened with stimulating speculation, Churchill on Leadership is a thought-provoking lesson on leadership.
