Everyone a Leader
The concepts behind the book, of taking responsibility, of value adding to the worth of projects, is similar across disciplines. Colceugh uses his experience and knowledge to establish a framework for those young in the industry to apply to their framework.
It suggests that leadership is a trait that each individual can apply to their situation. That this leadership element can be fostered and developed as individuals develop from engineers to leader-engineers.
Colceugh utilises his experiences, particularly at DuPont, to give practical applications to the theories and models he puts forward.
David Colcleugh retired as Chairman, President, and CEO of DuPont Canada in 2003 after a 39-year career with the company. He currently teaches Leadership Development in the Faculty of Applied Sciences and Engineering at the University of Toronto.
I would suggest this book for student engineers, those young in their careers, and those that are having difficulty coping with the changing world, particularly as business and technology continue to invade the world of engineering.
