Summary

Summary

If you want your business or organization to run well, this leadership book, adapted from the Official Army Leadership Manual, is the book for you. There are three keys to being a leader: be, know, do. Who a leader is (values such as loyalty and integrity), what a leader knows (about the world, about her- or himself ), and what a leader does (action) are all vitally important for successful leaders.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Army trains and develops more leaders than do all other institutions together–and with a lower casualty rate. Be, Know, Do shows how this is being done—and how it can be adapted by the nonmilitary: businesses, colleges and universities, nonprofits, and churches.”  Peter F. Drucker
“So you want to be a leader? Be, Know, Do tells you how, through an insightful combination of lessons from the Army’s battle-focused training manual and a series of organizational leadership case studies.”  Regina E. Herzlinger, professor, Harvard Business School
“Great leaders develop leaders at all levels who lead with integrity and values, are able to take action, and can make things happen. This book shows us how the very successful U.S. Army leadership development principles, be, know, do, have built one of the world’s most successful leadership pipelines. Anyone who wants to lead well and develop leadership at all levels should read this book.”  Noel M. Tichy, professor, University of Michigan Business School
