Summary

What makes a good and true leaderbrute power and force? The ability to persuade? Simply holding an influential position? Joseph M. Marshall III, the renowned author of the bestsellingThe Lakota Way, saysno. Reminding us that those who hold public office are first and foremost politicians, and that corporate bigwigs serve the bottom line, Marshall presents us with a different idea of leadership, one drawn from his own Lakota Sioux culture. "True leadership," he informs us, "is only possible when character is more important than authority." Marshall III draws inspiration from three names that have resonated powerfully throughout history to develop his unique concept of leadership: Sitting Bull, Red Cloud, and, especially Crazy Horse, whose fascinating life Marshall already chronicled in a biography thatPublishers Weeklypraised as "vivid and haunting." Crazy Horse did not teach leadership; he simply demonstrated it, effectively and with compassion. Four factors stand out when looking at him as a leader, and they were the basis of his success: Know yourself. Know your friends. Know the enemy. Lead the way. The Power of Fourshows how and why these maximsand this Native American philosophy of leadershipis not only applicable to today's world, but desperately needed: why leadership by example is more powerful than authority; and why the selection of leaders also becomes one way of controlling those very same leaders. Marshall will open readers' eyes and help them discover how to apply a new set of principles and actions to their own lives.
