Top 10 Reasons You Would Work for Lincoln

Lincoln and his CabinetIf you were ever lucky enough to have a favorite boss, you likely remember being motivated to get up early and stay late at work.  You thought about your job in your spare time, and came up with great ideas that you were excited to share as soon as you got to work.

Learn to Speak Well to Influence Others

abraham-lincoln-gettysburg-addressNO OTHER HUMAN ABILITY HAS THE POTENTIAL TO INSPIRE, PERSUADE, AND EXPLAIN LIKE GOOD SPEECH. 

Abraham Lincoln was a marvel at speaking in public.

When historians point to the greatest speeches in history, Lincoln usually makes the top of the list with the Gettysburg Address, his inaugural speeches, and his debates with Senator Stephen Douglas.

He had been a politician and a trial lawyer for nearly 30 years, so he was fairly well-versed at talking to others.

Considering that the country was going to tear itself apart before he even stepped into the White House, Abraham Lincoln probably felt that it wouldn’t be possible to overcompensate in his hiring of others.

At the age of 23, Abraham Lincoln had spent a month in the Black Hawk War, a small, brief, localized event in the upper Midwest.

Based on his previous, rather limited military experience, he needed a really good war secretary, and eventually he found one in Edwin Stanton.

Lincoln’s Staff Meetings Demonstrated the Good and the Bad

Healy, Abraham Lincoln 1887phCABINET MEMBERS CONTRIBUTED, BUT GENERALLY FELT THEY WERE WASTING THEIR TIME.

On the one hand, Abraham Lincoln did what a good manager should have done before the advent of email.  He asked for feedback and collaboration on how best to execute a decision he had already made, and he only called cabinet meetings when he felt they were needed.

(Though some cabinet members were irked that meetings were not regularly scheduled, this was not really a major problem since they often did visit with Lincoln alone.)
