steve_forbes_01Leadership Lessons: The Stunning Parallels between
Great Leaders of the Ancient World and Today’s Top Business Leaders

Times and circumstances change but principles and human nature do not. Based on his book, Power Ambition Glory, Steve Forbes provides six intriguing lessons from comparisons between great leaders of the ancient world and contemporary business leaders. What do Cyrus the Great and Jack Welch have in common? What do great leaders know that allowed Serge Brin and Larry Page of Google to challenge and best two formidable competitors, Microsoft and Yahoo? Julius Caesar was blinded to the dangers that eventually did him in, as surely as greed blinded Wall Street. In this illuminating and entertaining talk, Steve Forbes provides the lessons that will make or break businesses right now by exploring the remarkable similarities between those who directed the empires of the ancient world and many of today's corporate and political leadership.
