Winston Churchill: The Resilient Hero

Oops!  We had to remove the hero profile you’re looking for because it will soon appear in our new book Heroic Leadership: An Influence Taxonomy of 100 Exceptional Individuals, to be published by Routledge in 2013.

Our contract at Routledge required us to remove many of our profiles on our blog at this time.  But we do have other hero profiles and information about heroes on the menu bar located on the right side of this page.  Check it out!

In the mean time, please accept our apologies.  Here is more information about our new book.

  1. Talk about the right man at the right time. The world we live in would likely be a significantly different place if not for Churchill; certainly the history of the 20th Century would be. And he certainly did have a devastating wit– three quarters of a century later, I’ve been known to recycle some of those quips myself. 😀

  2. Winston Churchill is a hero. I couldn’t agree more with the idea that wit is an important quality for heroes to have. Churchill seems like a likeable man whose ability to be candidly honest made him stand apart from the crowd and allowed him to be a leader.

  3. Churchill is truly an inspiring person and perfectly personifies the word resilience. Unlike most heroes, who rise to the top and remain there, the life of Churchill was a constant roller coaster. He would be up and then back down, over and over again. Most people would have given up or not been able to deal with the depression or disease. However, Churchill did not, rather he kept on pushing. If not for his steadfastness then the world would be a mush different place today.

  4. I really enjoyed this blog post. To be a great leader you must have the demeanor and charisma to get the support of your country. This is exactly was Churchill had. This is one of the greatest Priministers England will ever have.
