Donald Rumsfeld on Rumsfeld’s Rules

June 3, 2013 With Donald Rumsfeld

Donald Rumsfeld has been a Congressman, White House Chief of Staff, CEO of numerous corporations, and served as Secretary of Defense in two different administrations. Over his many years of government and corporate life, he’s become known for what he calls his rules–a collection of stories, quotes, sayings and other lessons useful to anyone in a leadership position. Now he’s collected these rules into a most informative book called, what else, Rumsfeld’s Rules: Leadership Lessons in Business, Politics, War, and Life. We talk with him about his time in government, the war in Irag, and how these rules have guided him through his various posts and challenges in life.
