Alan Mulally, Ford CEO
My completely biased answer to this question is Alan Mulally, the CEO of Ford. Alan is a good friend and former coaching client. He walked into an incredibly difficult situation at Ford and made some very counter-intuitive decisions for acquiring funds (at exactly the right time, as it turns out.)
More important, as a leader, he has gone out of his way to create a positive, people-oriented culture. He has delivered results that are better than almost anyone would have predicted. He has laid out a clear path for the future of Ford - and the company has consistently moved down that path. Ford has also done this on their own dime - without using any taxpayer funds.
Alan is one of the greatest leaders of people that I have ever met in my life. He is focused on service - to his customers, stockholders and employees. One of the main reasons he chose to lead Ford is that he loves our country - and believes that the success of this historically important company is vital to the welfare of our nation.
