Inhaltsangabe: This engaging study of the life of Alexander the Great, the charismatic leader who created an empire that spanned most of the ancient world, provides an in-depth look at the psychodynamics of leadership that will be of use to contemporary leaders in business and politics, and to consulting and training organisations.In the first part of the book, the authors weave the fascinating tale of Alexander's life, whilst highlighting his considerable leadership skills. They then analyse Alexander's personality and behaviour from a clinical perspective to demonstrate the psychological forces that shaped those leadership qualities. They look at the key facets of Alexander's leadership technique in detail, as a practical demonstration of effective leadership, an conclude by cataloguing Alexander's strengths and, just as importantly, his weaknesses for the vital lessons in leadership.This volume provokes both introspection and inspiration in the minds of its readers. It is vital reading for all managers and management consultants, MBA students, and all concerned with effective leadership.'In analysing Alexander's personality and behaviour, this book takes a clinical perspective. It relies on concepts of the developmental psychology, family systems theory, cognitive theory, dynamic psychiatry, psychotherapy, and psychoanalysis to understand his behaviour and actions. Exploring themes that highlight psychological dimensions of Alexander's leadership style, these pages draw observations about the lessons of leadership that can be learned from his behaviour.'- From the Introduction
Inhaltsangabe: Exploring themes including the imagery of his inner theatre, the nature of his personal relationships, including that of his rivalry with his father and twinship, his narcissism and megalomaniacal behaviour, his paranoid tendencies, but above all, his peerless leadership abilities, this volume examines both what makes for effective leadership and where it can all go wrong.
