Publisher's Summary

All great leaders have a personal philosophy: a broad view of the human condition that informs every decision they make and their relationship with the organization and people they lead. Your philosophy is what allows you as a leader to access the kind of deeper, broader insights that result in extraordinary achievements. It is what sets you apart from those who simply "run" companies. To develop and articulate a sound corporate vision - and then follow through on it - you must develop an inner clarity, a ripened personal perspective. The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership explores thought-provoking ideas from Aristotle, Heraclitus, Sophocles, Hesiod, and other classical thinkers, and introduces essential leadership truths, including:

  • Live life by a higher code
  • Do not waste energy on things you cannot change
  • Understand that character is destiny
  • Always evaluate information with a critical eye
  • Never underestimate the power of personal integrity

The audiobook shows you how to apply each idea to the challenges of the modern workplace and combine it with what you discover about yourself as you delve into your own strengths and weaknesses. You'll develop your own ability to see The Big Picture, connect with members of your organization, foster a meaningful and productive work environment, and steer your corporate ship through any challenge. Skills and experience might land you a leadership position... but they don't make you a true leader. This unique and enlightening guide arms you with eye-opening leadership principles that have stood the test of time.

Chris' review

Although the narrator did well with the flow, his voice was too monotone and nearly put me to sleep while driving.

The story, great topics but too wordy. There were too many words and big ones to explain an already complex idea. I understood what he was trying to say. I just felt that he could have used a less complex way to explain it.

Great Leadership Rules

The content was very relevant and written well to relate the sources to today’s leadership methodologies. There were a couple opportunities to tie in more recent true to life stories as examples for each of the rules. However, it doesn’t take away from comprehension of each rule. Recommended for managers, C-level and Entrepreneurs. - The Positivity Man (Carter)

The Romans learnt from them and so can we!

What made the experience of listening to The Ten Golden Rules of Leadership the most enjoyable?

A very well put together book which looks at the ten pillars of Greek "life" which can be easily mapped to today's business structure. Especially refreshing to hear about Rule #5 and Rule #9 - personal integrity. Simple and very easy to apply to ones life, business or organisation. Well done and congratulations to Soupios & Mourdoukoutas.

What about Sean Pratt’s performance did you like?

Brilliant narrator - great voice. Should audition for Shakespeare :-)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

At how this can so easily be implemented into today's way of life.

Any additional comments?

An interesting and refreshing tonic.
