About the Book

How can the contemplations and teachings of a man who lived in ancient Greece help you in your role leading a tech giant or a restaurant chain?

Though skills and experience may have landed you your position, they don’t make you a great leader. Instead, true leaders evolve out of those who learn to look within and question themselves before they try to lead anyone else.

In this book, aspiring leaders will explore ideas from the greatest thinkers of all time--including Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and others--and learn how each of these classic teachings applies to the challenges of the modern workplace.

In The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership, teachings discussed and related to the twenty-first-century work environment include:

  • Know thyself
  • Do not waste energy on things you cannot change
  • Nurture community
  • Always embrace the truth
  • Let competition reveal talent, and more

Whether you have already been entrusted with a leadership position or you aspire to have that responsibility one day, your success in that role begins and ends with you--knowing who you are, what you believe in, and what you are capable of. Within The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership, you will learn the questions you need to reflect on in order to discover what kind of leader you can be.
