about

Perhaps no figure in recent memory more fully personifies leadership than President John F. Kennedy. Leading the United States in a time of unprecedented turbulence, challenge and opportunity, Kennedy led his administration (and the country) with a courage and determination that even his harshest critics respected.John F. Kennedy on Leadership identifies eleven core principles that made Kennedy, both before and during his presidency, a unique and dominant force who would serve as the standard by which future leaders would measure themselves--and by which they would be judged. Current and aspiring leaders would do well to adopt these principles, which include questioning the status quo, turning liabilities into pluses, making decisions, presenting an idealized view of what the future can be, finding your own "Bobby" and being the coolest person in the room.John F. Kennedy on Leadership doesn't shy away from the well-documented darker side of Kennedy's life: the seemingly nonstop parade of lovers and the chronic and multiple illnesses. Every leader faces personal challenges that affect the ability to lead. This book shows how legendary leadership can exist even in the face of substantial limitations.
John A. Barnes (New York City) has been a writer, journalist and television commentator for more than 17 years. His columns have appeared in the Boston Herald, the Detroit News and the New York Post. He is also the author of Ulysses S. Grant on Leadership.
