Lancee book is not yet featured on Listopia. This is a quick, fun read about Alexander the Great, but it has a bit of a forced feeling to it. Kurke is trying too hard to extract modern business leadership lessons from Alexander.
Sometimes it works, and sometimes it falls on its face. Kurke’s big thesis is that Alexander used the four powerful tools of “reframing problems, building alliances, establishing identity, and directing symbols” to achieve his great success. A few choice quotes: I believe that leaders are in the reality creation bus This is a quick, fun read about Alexander the Great, but it has a bit of a forced feeling to it.
I believe lancee leaders are in the reality creation business. They make the world, obviously within constraints, the way they want it to be.
My research suggests that the greatest leaders in history-military, political, and economic-do not attempt to solve such “impossible” problems when confronted with them. Rather, they find or create a different problem so that when they solve this new difficulty, the old unsolvable, or impossible problem becomes either trivial to deal with or irrelevant Alexander did not accept the apparent reality presented to him.
I am convinced that one of the most important skills of a leader is storytelling. Stories relate compelling lessons. Not only can you influence people with your choice of story, but you’ll influence the perceptions people have about you by your choice of leader and story.
You control the story to an important extent by your writings. Write with an eye on history. Apr 14, Tami rated it really liked it. In every battle he was at the forefront fighting with his men and always refused medical treatment until his men had been treated. He made a lot of really big mistakes but he also achieved a good deal.
The Wisdom of Alexander the Great looks at snippets of Alexander the Great’s reign; examines the leader’s actions and reactions; and then analyzes comparable strategies in modern business.
These excerpts are organized according to four main leadership strategies: The tone of this book is a little different that most business books on the market. The focus here is on building strong leadership that others will follow rather than a shared leadership scheme of many like books.
Indeed, this publication states that it is imperative that a good leader know how to spin things when problems arise. Oct 30, Ida rated it it was ok. Not my cup of tea, but at least I learned something. Alexander the Great is the most studied, most referenced leader in all of history.
In this work, Lance Kurke examines the actions of Alexander the Great, to illustrate his leadership techniques which was in most cases, ingenious. He discusses how Alexander used techniques such as reframing problems, building alliances, establishing identity, and directing symbols.
None is more poignant than being the fir Alexander the Great is the most studied, most referenced leader in all of history. None is more poignant than being the first general to conquer a Navy on land. The kkurke was that the kueke, the Persian Empire, had a seasoned Navy with more than vessels.
The Greeks needed control of the seas to secure there supply route. Instead he reframed the problem. He immediately garrisoned all sources of fresh water. Alexander had his army build a mole and conquer Tyre, hence securing all the fresh water sources and thus defeating the navy indirectly. Where everyone saw an impossible foe with the Persian fleet, Alexander found a weakness.
He reframed the problem early on in his campaign. The Battle at the River Hydapsesis exemplifies how Alexander built alliances. In addition, Alexander and his generals made it standard practice to marry and father children of their enemies to build alliances and ensure assimilation of the Greek and Persian cultures.
Alejandro Magno : su liderazgo : lecciones de liderazgo duraderas del hombre que creó un imperio
Alexander established identity and directed symbols. He established his identity by paying homage ,agno his ancestors, restoring revered places, and openly identifying his heroes such as Homer. He directed symbols most aptly by leading from the front.
In so doing he gained credibility and respect from his troops who would all willingly give their lives for him.
After receiving false information about sources of water wells, and being misled by local guides who hoped the army would die in the desert, Alexander soldiered on. Inevitably, the army ran out of water and soldiers started dying. Dehydrated and half dead, the entire army literally squeezed the last drops from their goat-bladder canteens and offered the water into a silver helmet to save their leader since they knew they were going to die.
This gave them the motivation they needed to push and survive their trek through the dessert. By reframing problems, building alliances, establishing identity, and directing symbols, Alexander commanded one of the most efficient armies in all of history while securing the largest empire of any conqueror to that point. He was victorious in battles where he was well outnumbered and out armed.
He put down mutinies, established authority in different kingdoms, and influenced a mix of cultures Hellenistic that have an impact on society even today. There are a lot of leadership skills we can learn from Alexander the Great, and Lance Kurke outlines some of the lessons we should learn. A must read for any leader or anyone who needs inspiration. Apr 20, Adeel Hasan rated it really liked it Shelves: I was not familiar with the history of Alexander.
This book not only shines some light on those, it goes a step forward and helps the leaders learn from his acheivements. Recommended reading for those interested in leadership skills. He lifted the civilized world out of one groove and set it in another; he started a new epoch; nothing could again be as it had been. I end with an apology. He did horrible things to people, he made terrible mistakes,but he changed the world irredeemably. Despite his short- comings, I offer three larger-than-life lessons that were not explicitly addressed earlier: Feb 22, Neviot rated it really liked it.

I must confess I wasn’t very informed about Alexander the Great prior to this book – and it’s perhaps not the best book to start with if you’re interested in learning about this incredible historical figure.
There’s just not enough information! I found myself constantly looking up other sources midway through reading. But the author does include a list at the back of the book with recommended further reading, a list I’ll be diving straight into. Jul 26, Russell Hayes rated it it was ok Shelves: I feel that this book is a bit mislabeled: The modern-day applications of Alexander’s behavior were a bit too cursory to be of much help. That being said, the details of Alexander’s conquests were fascinating, and many lessons can easily be drawn from his exploits–many more than the author described in the book.
I had to read this book for school – I wasn’t interested in the business parts which is kind of the point If you’re interested in business and Alexander the Great, then you’ll like this book ;P. Dec 12, Tommy rated it it was amazing Shelves: I must say, the beginning of the book was a drag, but the more I got into it, I realized this author extracts some valid examples.
This guy knows what he’s talking about, it’s not complicated; a very simple read. Jan 28, Ming rated it liked it. I don’t know what possessed me to read this, but it was actually surprisingly good, and possibly applicable.
