A Higher Standard

I picked up A Higher Standard by America’s first female four-star general, Ann Dunwoody, after she joined the board at Automattic. The book details her experience leading teams within the military and navigating a career that lasted nearly four decades, ending with leading the global supply chain for the Army. A Higher Standard represented a bit of a departure from typical leadership books. This was less a step-by-step, tactical leadership book and more a collection of personal stories that demonstrate key leadership principles. Perhaps that’s why I enjoyed it so much. I’d highly recommend!
