"The school of hard knocks has proven inadequate as a leadership laboratory. More than 230 years of American naval experience has taught us this lesson: if you want great leaders, prepare them to lead. The remainder of this book is dedicated to highlighting the range of leadership lessons inculcated at USNA."
--from chapter 1

the ability to lead others is a learned skill. and like any learned skill, its traits and tenets can be acquired through study and honed through practice before they are tested in the field.

Becoming a Leader the Annapolis Way is a hands-on account of how a number of today's most accomplished global leaders--not just in the military but in business, politics, and virtually every walk of life--were trained in effective leadership at the United States Naval Academy, and how the skills and tools they learned can be taught to anyone. This step-by-step book removes the veil of mystery by breaking leadership down into its identifiable, educable components, then discussing how each can be acquired through education, drilling, and the acceptance of nothing less than true mastery.

whether you are looking to unravel the "secrets" of leadership for your personal development, or have been given the responsibility of developing leaders in your company or organization, this straightforward and plain-spoken book details:

  • Six common personality traits that inhibit the ability to lead effectively--and how each can be overcome
  • The tenets of practicing great followership--more than any other anything else the key to becoming a great leader
