Publisher's Summary

Discover the leadership secrets of the warrior who centuries ago shaped an aimless band of mercenary tribal nomads into the undisputed rulers of the ancient world - and who today offers timeless lessons in win-directed, take-charge management.

Based on historical research, and filled with illuminating maxims, this essential guide offers the wisdom of a man who unified thousands, led the charge, kept the peace, picked his enemies wisely, and negotiated brilliantly - all the vital management principles that lead to success.

Listeners will learn:

  • Never to underestimate the power of an enemy to rise against you on another day

  • Never to give a Hun a reward that holds no personal value to yourself

  • Never to arbitrate, for it allows a third party to determine your destiny

  • Never to misuse power, for such action causes friction and rebellion in the tribe and nation, and much more

    This invaluable guide will help anyone manage people much more effectively.

      "What "secrets" ??? Any leadership book has more!"

      It's a very interesting book on Attila but as far as leadership goes there is nothing you will not find in other more thorough leadership books.

      This one you have to listen and then ask yourself how you would apply what he says in today's world.

      Passionate Father, Husband and Leader. I love to learn through experiences (successes and failures) and Audible books is an avenue for learning. Recently started buying children's audio books for my children.

      "Great book for new leaders"
      What did you love best about Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun?

      I was given this book by a colleague and friend in human resources when I became a leader in an organization that was under performing and in chaos. This was a good primer for me in learning to focus the team to a cause and do so relentlessly. The length of the audiobook made the content easy to consume.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      Atilla's defeat in Rome and how he behaved after the failure.
