“The Leadership Secrets of Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Fathers” should be required reading for individuals at all levels of government and industry. This book is an easy, interesting, and significant read. It presents a short history of how a rebel colony divided in its loyalties became an independent and united nation through the leadership of men like Hamilton, Madison, Franklin, Adams, Washington, and others. Their leadership principles of preparation, honesty, trust, humility, respect, and willingness to look beyond self-interest are important lessons for us all, no matter what our sphere of leadership. By focusing on the leadership philosophy, sacrificial service, and moral integrity of the Founding Fathers, it is inevitable that Leidner’s book will cause readers to consider the stark contrast between those inspiring statesmen of old who were committed to action because it was the right thing to do, and self-serving politicians of today. The leadership lessons presented in this book are a guide to developing true leaders from all walks of life – men and women that will look beyond self-interest and do the right thing!
