Leading through Wisdom and Integrity
This chapter examines George Washington’s leadership as a statesman after the victory of the American forces at Yorktown and discusses its relevance to business leadership. After the Yorktown victory in late 1781, Congress became complacent and Washington had to deal with the army’s logistical problems and low morale. He also had to deal with discontent among the officer corps when Congresses appeared not ready to provide back pay owed to many of the officers and seemed to be wavering on a prior pledge of pensions for them.
