Team of Rivals? Toward A New Model of the Corporate Attorney/ Client
Relationship David B Wilkins* Introduction From its founding, University College

TEAM. OF. RIVALS. For years I have said, in response to questions about the
differences in working with the executive branch during the Clinton and the
George W. Bush eras, that each administration fielded strong but unbalanced
teams—Clinton doing better on economics and Bush better on security. Clinton
ignored a lot of global security while helping to spread globalization with a speed
that can legitimately be described as radical/ reckless, and Bush is rightly
accused of just the ...

Awestruck Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts of ABC News echoed
the conventional wisdom: “Some would say it's a team of rivals, à la President
Lincoln, or is a better comparison a team of geniuses as FDR did?”10 I wrote this
book to give you the exhaustive answer that President Obama's gyrating media

You need to inspire and motivate yourself and your team to win. You'll also need
to recruit a strong team, not loyal yes-people who will make you feel safe. Doris
Kearns Goodwin's book Team of Rivals is a great management primer on
leadership and team building. Rather than paying back his chief rivals in the
presidential campaign by banish- ing them to political Siberia as most politicians
do, Abraham Lincoln gave his rivals cabinet posts! He formed a team of his
former rivals—the ...

“Prince didn't just have any old team—he had a team of fucking geniuses,” says
Howard Bloom. “What other artist has ever had a team of brains around like that?
It's almost like that book on Lincoln, Team of Rivals. It wasn't just Prince building
Prince in the 1980s, it was a team of people at their creative best who put
everything that they had creatively into it, because he deserved it, he earned it. “
At every stage of the game, you need goals that are higher than where you are

A decade ago, in her engaging Team of Rivals: The Political Genius of Abraham
Lincoln (2005), Doris Kearns Goodwin expressed a warm attachment to him as
the gold standard of American presidents. Her 750page study of his person and
his politics beguiled readers across the country. By 2012, it had sold 1.3 million
physical copies, ten times more than the total sale of David Donald's classic
biography Lincoln (1995). Political insiders couldn't resist Team of Rivals. During
