Management professor and West Point graduate, Evan Offstein, approached leaders at the U.S. Military Academy and the Department of the Army with two primary questions: (1) How does West Point develop its leaders?; (2) Can other individuals and organizations apply these principles effectively? Two years and dozens of interviews later, he offers unprecedented access to the process of leadership development at West Point. With an explicit mission to produce "honorable" leaders, West Point invests heavily in mentoring, training, and evaluation to ensure the character development of its 4,000 cadets. From Robert E. Lee to Edwin E. "Buzz" Aldrin to basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski, West Point has groomed leaders whose contributions far exceed the successful management of their immediate charges. By illuminating the principles by which West Point teaches leadership, Stand Your Ground not only provides a unique tour behind the scenes at this revered institution, but, more generally, imparts lessons of honor and character-building that can be adopted by any aspiring leader.
