Building a Team to Win
Today’s executives face daunting challenges, but they’re nothing compared to what King Henry was going through 600 years ago. Though he was only 27 years old and new to the throne, Henry led his troops against a French army with overwhelming advantages in cavalry, armor, and even sheer numbers — perhaps as great as ten-to-one. But he focused on:
- Building a diverse team
- Creating smart plans and sticking to them
- Being nimble when those plans don't work out perfectly
- Motivating followers and overcoming doubters
Forsooth! You guessed it! – Henry pulled off an historic upset victory through timeless leadership skills, values, and behaviors practiced by the best in business today.
