Colin Powell: A Legacy of Leadership by Steve Adubato, PhD

Colin Powell: A Legacy of Leadership by Steve Adubato, PhD

In my latest book, “Lessons in Leadership,” I wrote a chapter featuring the exceptional leadership traits of General Colin Powell. Oddly the chapter is called “Great Leaders Sometimes Piss People Off.” That pithy quote came directly from an interview I did with the late General Powell over a decade ago in which I asked him about the keys to great leadership. What struck me is that he said that the best leaders must make tough decisions, including ones that will not be popular with certain team members or key stakeholders, because the leader believes that particular decision is best for the team or organization.  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
