Product Description

Many authors write about leadership, but few have lived it at the level of Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch. The world is in desperate need of authentic, reliable leaders at all levels of society. Twenty-first-century leaders face unprecedented challenges and rapid change, and leaders with a keen ability to adapt are in high demand.
Sharing stories from the front and insights born from overcoming adversity on both the battlefield and in the boardroom, Lynch reveals impactful leadership principles ranging from earning respect and working effectively with diverse teams to adapting to new technology and laying a foundation of trust built upon integrity. With refreshing directness, he shows readers how to make wise calls and gain the confidence they need to lead in our ever-changing world.

    This book is written for people who see themselves as leaders or who inspire to be leaders. As a young woman who has a strong personality, I look for books that can guide me and help me be a good leader. That being said, I felt like this book was largely centered around Lynch's accomplishments and how great and fantastic he was. It felt unattainable at times and not relatable to me. Perhaps this is because I am not in the military, I am not certain. For example, there is an example where he mouthes off to some one above him and surprisingly get rewarded for this. While this may be an isolated incident of luck, I cannot see myself as a teacher getting rewarded for smarting off to my principal. While there are certainly take aways from this book for leaders, it is not a book I would recommend to a friend. 3/5 stars.
