Executive: “Lincoln has all the great qualities of any great leader I know”

Lincoln’s leadership talents were the subject of a speech delivered at Utah State University:

Jerry Bussell, vice president of operations at Medtronic, was the keynote speaker for a Business Operational Excellence seminar, sponsored by the business college. As president of Bussell Lean Services, he said he advocates a people-first leadership style.            

“Lincoln has all the qualities of any great leader I know,” Bussell said. “He was humble, yet he had great resolve.”

Bussell said he has done extensive research into Lincoln’s life, career and presidency. He is currently working on a book about his findings, he added.
