An American icon, Robert E. Lee ranks among the world's truly great leaders. Al Kaltman, author of the highly acclaimed Cigars, Whiskey, and Winning (Prentice Hall Press) which illuminates the leadership legacy of Ulysses S. Grant, now turns his attention to reflect on the remarkable life of the Civil War general and his practical lessons for today's leaders--corporate, civic, and military.

Arranged chronologically, The Genius of Robert E. Lee presents Lee's personal incidents in his own words and is then followed by powerful advice for today's leaders. The years Lee spent in the Army before the Civil War are the basis for many practical lessons in values-based leadership. How Lee dealt with the post-war years teaches valuable lessons in taking onnew leadership roles after failure and managing a second career. Lessons focus on--

Taking command from a solid foundation and projecting a winning image.

Learning while teaching and delegating without abdicating.

Rising to challenges and continuously striving for improvement.

Robert E. Lee is best remembered as the superb general who held the Union commanders at bay until his outnumbered, outgunned, and poorly fed army was finally overwhelmed by Union forces. Today's leaders, especially those contending for scarce resources while meeting the challenges posed by better financed and more technically advanced competitors, will profit from Lee's examples as they are presented in this book.
