Wess Roberts - Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun


Wess Roberts

Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun



When the consequences of your decision are too grim to bear, look for another option. Never underestimate the power of an enemy to rise against you on another day. Never give a Hun a reward that holds no personal value to yourself. Never arbitrate, for it allows a third party to determine your destiny. Most of all, never misuse power. Such action causes friction and rebellion in the tribe and nation.
You're about to discover what thousands of CEOs and their staffs have already found out for themselves: that the man who centuries ago shaped an aimless collection of mercenary tribal nomads into the undisputed rulers of the ancient world today offers us stunning lessons in everyday leadership.

In the storytelling tradition of The One Minute Manager, based on careful historical research, and filled with pithy, illuminating maxims, LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF ATTILA THE HUN gives you the wisdom of a man who unified thousands. You'll listen as he addresses his warriors on leading the charge, keeping peace in the camp, picking one's enemies wisely, negotiating-all the vital management principles that lead to success or failure. You'll find out-as H. Ross Perot, William Coors, and James B. Patterson did-how inspiring and useful this book can be, not only for yourself, but for those who work for you.

The first privately printed edition of LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF ATTILA THE HUN sold out when scores of executives ordered copies for their employees. Now available to all, this invaluable guide can help business people, parents, teachers - anyone who has to manage people.

In a time when, more than ever, America needs leaders, America needs LEADERSHIP SECRETS OF ATTILA THE HUN.

WESS ROBERTS served as a major with the prestigious U.S. Army Combat Arms Training Board. He worked as a senior manager for American Express and Northrop Services, produced several award-winning motivational and training films, and authored over forty-five professional papers on human behavior and leadership. He is currently vice president for human resources development for Fireman's Fund Insurance.
