Few people had more important and momentous careers that President Dwight (Ike) Eisenhower.

During World War II he was Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe.  He not only led the planning for the invasion of Europe, his remarkable interpersonal skills held together a fragile coalition of US, English, French and Russian Allies often at odds with each other.  He then served two terms as an extremely popular president of the United States in the 1950s.

In addition to his people skills, he was able to manage himself for remarkable effectiveness.

This short article shares how he looked at the challenges in front of him and how he decided what to do…..and equally important what NOT to do.
