Powerful leadership lessons from a trailblazing female colonel in the U.S. Army. When Jill Morgenthaler arrived at boot camp in 1975 as part of the inaugural class of women in the Army, she was one of 83 female cadets... on a base of 50,000 men. So she knows a thing or two about conquering obstacles. In The Courage to Take Command, Colonel Morgenthaler provides invaluable leadership lessons drawn from her three decades of military service - from her first days in ROTC to combat in some of the world´s most dangerous war zones. Ironically, the military taught her that leadership isn´t about ´´command and control´´. Rather, it requires a fine balance of reason and emotion, distance and familiarity, hard and soft power. Learn how to lead your team to success by: Being true to your vision - but being open to new ideas Tackling obstacles head-on - but using finesse to arrive at solutions Focusing on the mission - while protecting your people Projecting strong leadership presence - but serving every member of your team, especially the weakest and most vulnerable Maintaining team spirit - but refusing to tolerate mediocrity Accepting and embracing your fears - but never letting them control you Always having a plan - but also trusting your gut Expressing a healthy self-confidence - with a side of humility It took both a spine of steel and a smart sense of people for Morgenthaler to get where she did. Now she draws on the wisdom garnered from her experience to help you develop an authentic brand of leadership and succeed at all levels of any organization. The Courage to Take Command provides the strategies and tactics you need to follow through with your leadership vision, inspire your team, and execute your mission - even when the odds may seem overwhelming. 1.

Though Americans would be able to look back in hindsight at 1777 as the year the American Revolution reached a turning point in favor of the colonists, the winter of 1777 was still considered a miserable point for the cause at the time. Although Benedict Arnold and Horatio Gates were victorious at Saratoga, George Washington and his Continental army had been less successful. After being pushed back into Pennsylvania at the end of 1776, Washington attempted to surround the British army as it invaded Philadelphia in 1777, but he failed miserably. At the Battle of Germantown, Washington was defeated and forced to retreat, and on October 19th, 1777, the British entered Philadelphia and the Continental Congress fled to nearby York. Ultimately, it would be the French, not Washington, who forced the British out of Philadelphia. After learning of the French entry into the war, the British immediately abandoned Philadelphia to garrison New York City, which the British feared could be taken by French naval assault. After another disappointing year of defeats, Washington´s 11,000 men entered winter quarters at Valley Forge in Pennsylvania, about 20 miles outside of occupied Philadelphia. His army had repeatedly faced a lack of discipline and chronic disorganization, and Congress began to consider replacing Washington as Commander in Chief after the fall of Philadelphia. General Gates, who had received the lion´s share of the credit for Saratoga by marginalizing Benedict Arnold´s role in its success when he submitted his report to the Congress, was floated as an alternative, and Washington was understandably devastated. Making matters worse, the winter was unusually harsh, leading to an estimated 2,000 or so deaths in camp from diseases. Gouverneur Morris would later call the soldiers at Valley Forge a ´´skeleton of an army...in a naked, starving condition, out of health, out of spirits.´´ However, it was at Valley Forge that Washington truly forged his army 1.
