display_description West Point takes leadership very seriously. They must: military leaders literally hold lives in their hands. Living up to such critical responsibilities takes courage, determination, integrity, self-discipline - and the highest performance in each of these areas. West Point has trained more leaders than the Harvard Business School to meet precisely these standards. This book takes the reader inside one of the most demanding and unusual leadership programs anywhere. Raw. Recruits at West Point are stripped of everything experience has taught them about success and motivation and teamwork. They spend every waking moment learning the toughest lesson of all: character. They are taught how to live by their word - and they discover why that is a leader's most powerful single action. A leader who lives by his word can be counted upon to choose "the harder right"--Put the needs of the organization ahead of personal considerations - in every. Instance.
