From Presidents to CEOs, the Price of Politics and Larger Lessons of Leadership

From Presidents to CEOs to the personal lessons learned along the way, Bob Woodward is candid and straightforward as he shares with audiences the leadership lessons he has learned and observed over the years.

Using his vast background, Woodward is able to expertly explore with audiences the successes and failures of Presidents from Nixon to Obama. Presenting case studies in presidential leadership and decision-making, he helps audiences understand where administrations have gone right and wrong in dealing with domestic and international issues and describes what to look for in future leaders. He also explores the price of politics and its impact on leadership, and in particular cites specific examples of how the relationship between the President and Congress impacts the American people. His keen insight on leading while adapting to changing circumstances is thought provoking and relevant to audiences in any industry.
