Talks On Leadership
Every time we learn something new, we develop our ability to critical thinking. Past events teach us about the triggers, influences and results of our thoughts and actions. This knowledge enables us to adopt a different perspective, and to discern the current state from the context. This process also occurs in the collective memories of societies. Archaeology studies human processes of actions and results that happened a long time ago. In the past, there have been a few people who were able to inspire themselves and other people to make a change in these processes in order to grow and to survive. These people were influential leaders who had the right leadership skills and values to see opportunities to develop success for the group that they affiliated with.
Julius Caesar is well known because of his historical accounts on Gaul and the Julian Calender, but most of all he was an expert in change management. He transformed the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. With that, he had to solve a financial crisis that was threatening Rome, in the aftermath of a disrupting civil war.
Cleopatra VII of Egypt was a young girl when she became the last Pharao of Ptolemaic Egypt, the last descendant from the family of Alexander the Great. She inherited an antique world that was further back in time to her, than Cleopatra is to modern day. Still, her social networking resulted in reinstalling ancient Egyptian traditions to legitimize her power as a pharaoh and as a woman in a by men dominated society.
Alexander the Great was a man with a vision to conquer the then-known world and create a Pan Hellenic society with one law, one coin and one king. He was an innovator in military strategy, management, politics and PR. He truly was the greatest leader of all time. Alexander conquered an empire so big, that his successors could not consolidate the power that Alexander gained so well.
