General Colin Powell (6/7/12)

Throughout his decades of service to the country, General Powell has kept his private life out of the limelight. Now, in his new book, It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership, Powell is opening up to reveal the important principles that guided his journey from being the son of Jamaican immigrants to becoming chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the first African-American secretary of state.

He will reveal the foundations for achievement and leadership that worked for him and can help make others' dreams come true, too.


Part of the American Values series. Underwritten by the Koret and Taube Family Foundations and The Bernard Osher Foundation
