    One thought on “The Wisdom of Alexander the Great: Enduring Leadership Lessons from the Man Who Created an Empire”

    1. 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 [...]

    2. Alexander the Great ascended the throne at age 20, unified Greece in less than two years, and conquered Asia Minor, Egypt, Mesopotamia, the Middle East, the Persian Empire, and Afghanistan. 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 ac [...]

    3. 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. To quote the authorTarn put it succinctly when he asserted that ‘‘he was one of the supreme fertilising forces of history. 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.1 I be [...]

    4. This was a very quick read, compiled from short chapters with examples from Alexander's history that are then spun into lessons that modern readers can extrapolate, organized according to the author's message of the four leadership processes of enactment: reframing problems, building alliances, establishing identity, and directing symbols. Some of the lessons and interpretations are either far-fetched or forced, but the majority of the book still made for both an entertaining and a thought-provo [...]

    5. I feel that this book is a bit mislabeled: it is more of a history book than one about business management. 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.

    6. 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.

    7. I don't know what possessed me to read this, but it was actually surprisingly good, and possibly applicable

    8. A must read when you're responsible for Strategic Planning & New Business Development for your organization. Lessons are still applicable today.
