General George S. Patton – A Vision for Today’s Leadership

Most of you have seen the movie “Patton” starring George C. Scott that came out in 1970. If you remember the opening scene, Patton was on stage in his full military dress uniform, standing in front of a large American flag, making a motivational speech to his troops. That speech was actually a compilation of speeches Patton gave to his Third Army before the D-Day landings on June 6, 1944.

The video below is a parody of that speech adapted for business and is what General Patton would say to today’s American business leaders.
