IN THIS SUMMARY

In The Courage to Take Command, Colonel Jill Morgenthaler applies universal principles of leadership to daily situations that leaders encounter at work. She focuses on developing strategies for self-reliance, dealing with detractors, and earning the trust of employees. Standing up for those who are unfairly treated is an important responsibility of a leader. Using power effectively, getting along with difficult coworkers, and using surprise and humor as leadership tools are all useful strategic practices. Moving up the chain of command, even when they are not sure they are ready, is a practice of the best self-motivated leaders.
