Author: Daniel York
In his first volume, The Strong Leader’s Hand, Major General Daniel York established the six essential elements every leader needs to master in order to be a successful leader. Now in this companion work, The Weak Leader’s Fist, the author powerfully reveals the six nonessential elements every leader must unmaster to be effective. By skillfully illustrating each point with stories, you will be given a clear understanding of how weak leaders undermine the very people they are supposed to lead. Learn what not to do!
No stranger to leadership, Daniel York directed or led people for the past forty years, to include his current position as the Reserve Advisor to NORAD/NORTHCOM. Growing up in Okinawa, South Korea, Japan, and the Philippines and across the United States, he learned much about leading in different cultures and settings. Dan graduated from West Point in 1981 and was commissioned a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army. He served with the 101st Airborne (Air Assault) Division, and, as an infantry company commander, deployed his unit to the Middle East. In 1986, he joined the Army Reserves where he served as a commander at every level, to include his most recent command, the 76th Operational Response Command. Major General York commanded three divisions—a very unusual accomplishment in the military.
