Victory through a Strong Alliance
This chapter examines how George Washington secured liberty for America against the British during the American Revolution and its relevance to business leadership. Washington showed that he could think and act under pressure by turning a near defeat into a solid performance in the battle at Monmouth. In working with France, Washington displayed different traits, acting diplomatically to manage the alliance between the two countries to keep it intact and ensure that it would eventually be victorious. The key to Washington’s success was his dynamic leadership in a high-stakes and time-constrained environment.
