  • Lincoln on leadership


    Only ten days before Abraham Lincoln took the oath of office in 1861, the Confederate States of America seceded from the Union taking ail Federal agencies, forts, and arsenals within their territory. To make matters worse, Lincoln, who was elected by a minority of the popular vote, was viewed by his own advisors as nothing more than a gawky, second-rate country lawyer with no leadership experience.

    What Lincoln did to become our most honored and revered president is history, how he can help you to run your organization is not.
