Nelson's Way addresses the realities of Nelson's career, asking pragmatic questions in search of practical answers that can be applied to real careers today. It shows how much Nelson still has to teach us, and how much we still have to learn from him. Nelson's Way arrives at the right time and on the right lines."From the Foreword by N.A.M. Rodger, author of The Command of the OceanVice Admiral Horatio Lord Nelson has been widely admired as an exemplary leader. His dynamic approach to leadership and management has now been distilled into a series of practical insights for today's managers. Nelson's Way brings 'the Nelson Touch' - his vision, courage, and above all, leadership skills to a new generation.With contributions from well-known leadership experts including Sir John Harvey-Jones, Admiral Sir Jonathon Band, John Adair, Greg Dyke and Dr Henry Mintzberg, Nelson's Way incorporates the latest research and joins a series of ground-breaking studies applying historical biography to leadership. The book delivers radical new insights into Nelson, his heroic exploits and legendary leadership skills, his passions, sacrifices and victories.Against the backdrop of the high seas in the Napoleonic wars, Jones and Gosling explain how Nelson dedicated himself completely to his profession and beloved Navy. A manager as well as an inspiring leader, he was concerned about every ship and every seaman, as well as honour and glory. Always visible, he led from the front. A participative rather than directive leader, sharing the excitement and initiative of command, he nevertheless bore final responsibility. Prepared to die for the cause, he was a legend in his lifetime.Now everyone can be inspired by Nelson's legend and aspiring leaders can learn how to recreate 'the Nelson Touch'."The lessons from Nelson's leadership are even more appropriate today than they were two centuries ago. The freely given support of all your people is the key to competitive success." Sir John Harvey-JonesContentsForward by N.A.M.
