No Yelling consists of nine chapters, each of which discuss and provide examples of a key leadership trait, such as integrity, technical competence and taking care of your people. I remember these subjects being treated at length in ROTC classes at Notre Dame - where incidentally, the author also studied them - but they stick with you for life. Now that I am in the corporate world, like many a retired officer, I found it deplorable that so many civilian "leaders" fail to demonstrate many of these traits. This book is an attempt to clarify, the "right way" from the "wrong way" when it comes to leading people and accomplishing a mission.Read more ›
