Abraham Lincoln – Leadership Style and Historical Context

Write a twelve-page term paper on the leadership style of Abraham Lincoln.  In addition to the analysis of the leadership style utilized by Lincoln, also include the role that historical context played in shaping Lincoln’s leadership style.

Here is an outline I prepared: 


Abraham Lincoln was arguably one of the greatest presidents of all time. Lincoln faced a multitude of challenges including a secession, the civil war, and slavery to name a few. Lincoln was selfless, honest, humble, graceful, and just. However, what really helped Lincoln stand out was his incredible ability to influence people, most notably by his oratory skill.

Early Life

This section will discuss Lincolns childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, and the beginning of his professional life as a lawyer and young politician. 

Failures and Perseverance 

Lincoln had many failures in his life. He was born into poverty and did not have the greatest upbringing or support. He struggled in his career and lost almost a dozen elections. This section will outline how Lincoln persevered. 

Lessons Learned. Lincolns ability to demonstrate humility and learn from his failures was second to none. Lincoln lost many elections and learned a lot from those failures which enabled him to win the presidency. This section will leverage the lessons learned and how they contributed to Lincolns character and bolstered his leadership skills. 

Triumphant Leadership. This section will outline Lincolns monumental successes and how his influential abilities and leadership led to one of the most successful presidencies of all time. 

Lasting Leadership and Influence. The impact of Lincolns leadership is everlasting and felt in present day. Obviously, putting an end to slavery and keeping the South from seceding are incredible feats, but Lincoln impacted people and the country in many more ways that will be discussed in this section. 


Lincoln is one of the most prominent leaders in American history. When thinking about the last several centuries, an argument can be made that he was one of the greatest leaders in the world. The industrial revolution had put America in a strong position and Lincolns presidency was one that kept the country from splintering, and ensured it maintained its power, and ended 250 years of slavery. Lincoln experienced many challenges and failures, but persevered, and demonstrated prevailing leadership in the most austere circumstances.
