Book Description

Oct. 4 2011
General Rick Hillier’s views on leadership evolved over his three decades as a soldier. Early in his career he watched as many of his superiors made bad decisions. Later he learned at the school of hard knocks as the head of emergency rescue operations in Canada and international task forces in eastern Europe and Afghanistan. Never one to be shy with his opinions, Hillier is as frank and straightforward in Leadership as he is in his #1 bestselling memoir, A Soldier First.<P>For Hillier, leadership is all about people—embracing those you are in charge of and winning over those you need to work with—not about risk aversion or management fads. Leaders think long and have a plan. Their actions speak, not their words, and they make their own luck. But leaders also act out of moral courage, take advantage of crises, accept failure and remain perpetually optimistic. Whether on the front lines of a business or in any situation that requires strong communication and vision, leaders go with their gut and make the tough decisions look easy. Leadership is an inspirational, easy-to-read and, in true Hillier fashion, often humorous collection of fifty principles that will challenge the way you run your business, start a project or take that next step in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful Lessons May 23 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A wonderful book for any military service men/women, cadet officers, or anyone in leading roles within their organization. General Hillier keeps his advice simple, yet powerful and poignant . Every chapter of this book was a reminder to think big, stay strong, learn and learn with your team, or "pee on the fence" as he so eloquently puts it. More people should read these mini life lessons and continue to take pride in our Canadian Forces, RCMP, Cadet Programs, and countless other organizations striving to better our country. A great read!
