Leadership Lessons from Robert Mueller, Special Prosecutor


"Shortly after taking over as United States attorney in San Francisco in 1998, former colleagues recalled, Mr. Mueller asked all the supervisors in the office to step down......

So rather than prodding employees, he preferred to move quickly to assemble the best possible team, even if his method was disruptive." - Sanders DiPiero
