Marine Corps Wisdom from a Medal of Honor Recipient
Drawing on forty-three years of leading Marines in two wars and in peace time, Medal of Honor recipient Col. Wesley Fox defines the six elements of leadership essential to building a successful organization as: care, personality, knowledge, motivation, commitment, and communication. He presents a chapter on each element, telling how his views of leadership were forged and offering examples of leadership displayed by his fellow Marines.
Fox contends that these elements apply equally to the military and civilian communities at all levels. In his view, good leaders are concerned with the health, happiness, and daily lives of their followers and enjoy a relationship built on loyalty and trust. His book is certain to inspire and motivate others.
