Last week, we wrote about Noah Webster as part of our Lessons in Leadership series. This week, we fast forward half a century to Henry Ford.
Henry Ford (1863 – 1947) was the founder of the Ford Motor Company. He is perhaps best known for his invention of the Model T and his development of modern assembly lines used in mass production.
Some of Ford’s business practices garnered a great deal of criticism at the time—and a few still do today—but there’s no denying the legacy he’s left or that he had an innate ability to lead others, and for that reason we turn to him for some Lessons in Leadership.
