Four-star general and former Secretary of State Colin Powell reveals the unique lessons that have shaped his life and legendary career in public service. IT WORKED FOR ME begins with Powell’s “Thirteen Rules” – notes he gathered over the years and that now form the basis of his leadership presentations given throughout the world. Among these rules are “Get mad, then get over it,” “Share credit,” and “Remain calm. Be kind.” To illustrate these rules, Powell shares personal stories that introduce and expand upon his principles for effective leadership: conviction, hard work, and, above all, respect for others.
