He has taught at Lake Forest College and Furman University, worked as a publishing executive, and has been a consultant to historical museums, cultural institutions, television's Civil War Journal, the WB Network, and the Discovery Channel. This is one of Axelrod's "CEO" series. It examines Theodore Roosevelt--typically ranked among the top five US presidents. This title explores Theodore Roosevelt's leadership skills. Historians typically rank Theodore Roosevelt among the top five presidents. A man of omnivorous interest, Roosevelt was a progressive in social and political issues. Yet he believed wholeheartedly in capitalism; he believed that bold entrepreneurial enterprise and long-established big business were both the great drivers of the American economy, of American greatness. In "Theodore Roosevelt", CEO, Axelrod looks at this much-studied figure in a way nobody has before, using an engaging, conversational style to explore seven inspirational areas he has identified as constituting Roosevelt's principal leadership lives: the strenuous life, the learning life, the teaching life, the innovative life, the executive life, the political life and the steward's life. Within these areas are 136 lessons interpreted for modern business leadership. Condition: Very good / Very good.
