Editorial Reviews

Review

“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 face 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 simply, 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

From AudioFile

Using a forced metaphor, a corporate communications specialist and history buff presents a case for learning effective leadership and business principles from General Dwight "Ike" Eisenhower's role in the Allied invasion of Nazi-occupied Europe. Former broadcast journalist Mort Crim has a stilted, monotonous tone that sounds somewhat old-fashioned. He provides neither emotional variation nor vocal characterizations of the principals. Military history enthusiasts will likely enjoy the highly detailed compilation of military machinations and perspectives, despite the limited audio production values. While Eisenhower was undeniably an extraordinary leader, the business lesson parallel falls flat. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
