He explains how Washington maximized his strengths and overcame his flaws, and inspires us to do likewise. It shows how one man's struggles and successes 200 years ago can be a model for leaders today.
Washington oversaw two start-ups: the army and the presidency. He chaired the most important meeting in American history, the Constitutional Convention. Washington rose from being a third son who was a major in the militia to one of the most famous men in the world. At every stage in his career, he had to deal with changing circumstances, from tobacco prices to geopolitics, and with wildly different classes of men, from frontiersmen to aristocrats.

Enjoyed the Different Perspective
Would you consider the audio edition of George Washington on Leadership to be better than the print version?
After listening to a number of biographies on Washington the information about his life becomes a little redundant. George Washington on Leadership provides a different perspective of aspects of his life and how, as a leader of an army and then a nation, his style was developed. For me, most interesting was how the author was able to intermingle Washington's leadership style into modern day terms focusing on honesty, integrity, compassion, bravery and fortitude under the most trying of circumstances, and a basic understanding of human behavior. Using Washington as a model for our own lives truly provides us lofty goals. Something our leaders in government and in the private sector community should take note of.The narrator did a good job with the reading and kept my interest. I completely enjoyed this book.
