Just as we must study history to better understand our world, so must we study the individuals who created history to better understand ourselves. By examining how the legacies of Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr., and Gandhi, for example, have shaped our society, we can learn to better shape our own legacies.
The Leadership Legacy offers a broad look at the role of leadership throughout human history, exploring the many ways in which successful leaders have used their circumstances, talent, values, and service to assert their influence. Here is a quick glimpse of what you can expect within these pages:
- A thorough examination of the theories of leadership
- Case studies of history’s greatest leaders, including Eleanor Roosevelt, Nelson Mandela, and Mother Teresa, among many others
- Thoughtful questions at the end of each chapter to help extend the discussion beyond the page
What makes a good leader? The answer changes over time. As Gandhi said, “I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles; but today it means getting along with people.”
With the lessons revealed in this book, you will be able to identify for yourself what it means to be a good leader in the twenty-first century.
