In Lead like Ike the author shares ten business and management strategies from the CEO of D-Day. Some of the topics in the book deal with; “Planning for Success, Communicating, Managing your People, Being Honest, and Staying Focused.” Leaders can learn a lot about how to manage by looking into history and seeing what leaders have done in the past. This book is full of history and also current day examples of good and bad management.
I liked the principles in the book but had a hard time with the writing style. I had a hard time connecting with the author and what he was saying. I don’t know if it was his writing style or me but it did not grab my attention. But if you like history and management you might like the book. I really liked the author giving ways to implement the strategies and how you can apply them into your life. Also at the end of each chapter he gave “Debriefing Notes.”
