Audible Editor Reviews

An Audiophile Earphones Award winner and former personality on American Forces Radio, performer George K. Wilson brings his deep, rich voice to this very serious tract on personnel management in the 21st century. Leading the Charge is written by Tony Zinni (with help from Tony Koltz), a retired U.S. Marine Corps general and instructor at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy.

Aimed with an H-bomb’s generality at business, military, academic, and political leaders, this audiobook claims that leadership demands have changed and successful managers must adapt to new technological shifts and make themselves ready to manage crises at all times. An emphasis on developing a "moral compass" is included.

Publisher's Summary

The times are changing at an ever-increasing velocity. Old systems, organizations, and ways of operating no longer work in our dynamic, complex and increasingly unstable new environment. Out of this chaos and confusion, a new and different leader must emerge. Old systems and methods will no longer work.

Leading the Charge is a visionary leadership book that examines the trends that have reshaped our world and the ways in which leaders and organizations can effectively respond.

Tomorrow's successful leaders - in all fields, including the military, academia, politics, and business - must know how to create, operate, and thrive in very fluid, flattened, and integrated structures that are remarkably different from the traditional organizations we are used to seeing. They will have to manage rapidly changing technology and flows of information, as well as create faster and more far-reaching spans of control. Leading the Charge shows the way. It is an incisive and compelling guide to the new world of leadership, one that will prove indispensable for years to come.
