Thirty-four famous international leaders and experts within business, politics, art, sport, philanthropy and more - including Philip Kotler, Anita Roddick, Michael Dukakis and Philippe Starck - are united in a timeless and universal project about leadership, ethics and visions. The modern topics discussed in each chapter of The Mind of a Leader are closely related to the issues raised in the 26 chapters of Niccolò Machiavelli's controversial strategic masterpiece ‘The Prince’. The multi-cultural project examines different aspects of modern leadership and encourages future leaders to be strategic, but also responsible and humane when achieving ambitious goals. The project reveals the participants’ personal views and not their knowledge in terms of Machiavelli.
The Mind of a Leader is an outstanding training and development tool. Each chapter features questions, conclusions and practical hands-on advice in regards to both individual and organizational success. A fascinating journey to the inside of successful modern organizations and leadership minds.
