Presidential Leadership

From across history and across the aisle, the examples of twenty-one American presidents demonstrate how to inspire and unite in this leadership guide.

Harry Truman once commented, "In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still." In Presidential Leadership, Dr. Brent Taylor sets out a series of timeless leadership lessons drawn from presidential history. Pairing two presidents per chapter, Taylor explores the leadership skills they shared, and how we can apply them to our own lives.

At a time when political tribalism is on the rise, Presidential Leadership demonstrates that we can learn important lessons even from those with whom we disagree. From Lincoln and Nixon, to JFK and Obama, to Trump and Jackson, each chapter tells a story of courage under immense pressure, and a determination to lead American through the trials of history.
