The bestselling author of Team of Teams dismantles the Great Man theory of leadership, by profiling leaders whose real stories defy their legends.

In Leaders, retired four-star general Stan McChrystal explores what leadership really means, debunking the many myths that have surrounded the concept. He focuses on thirteen great leaders, showing that the lessons we commonly draw from their lives are seldom the correct ones.

Leaders featured in the book include:

Founders: Walt Disney and Coco Chanel

Zealots: Maximilien Robespierre and Abu Musab Zarkawi

Powerbrokers: Margaret Thatcher and Boss Tweed

And other leaders profiled include geniuses Albert Einstein and Leonard Bernstein, reformers Martin Luther and Martin Luther King, Jr., and heroes Harriet Tubman and Zheng He.

Ultimately, McChrystal posits that different environments will require different leaders, and that followers will choose the leader they need. Aspiring leaders will be best served not by cultivating a standard set of textbook leadership qualities, but by learning to discern what is required in each situation.

‘Leaders rexamines old notions of leadership – especially the outdated view that history is shaped by great men going it alone’ – SHERYL SANDBERG, COO of Facebook and founder of LeanIn.Org

‘Leaders takes us deeper than most other leadership books into the true and often messy mechanics of leadership. Anyone who considers themselves a student of leadership must read this book’ – SIMON SINEK, optimist and author of Start With Why and Leader Eat Last
