Five Ancient Principles of Leadership
by Jack Myrick
New Paperback edition. Publication Date: November 2015
Everything rises and falls on leadership. Leadership is the most critical ingredient in any organization. We all understand the importance of good leadership and know it when we see it, but describing or teaching leadership is elusive at best.
A lot is written about leadership and its many philosophies. Words and phrases such as “hierarchal structures,” “reframing,” “leader charisma,” “stewardship,” “stakeholders,” “lines of authority,” “distribution of power,” “lateral thinking,” “implementation by objective,” “systems thinking,” “group cohesiveness,” and “transactional leadership,” get bandied about.
Programs that somehow manage to be both complex and imprecise are offered as the path to effective leadership. But is being a good leader really all that complicated? Are there intricate techniques to be analyzed, mastered, and applied? Or, is it that great leaders are born, not made? The answer to these questions is, “absolutely not.”
With The Shipbuilder, speaker and business leader Jack Myrick shares five simple, time-proven principles that, are guaranteed to make you an extraordinary leader. This delightful business management allegory set in ancient Greece teaches the Five Principles of Leadership.
In The Shipbuilder, the reader will learn how to: 1) Get more done with fewer people; 2) Supervise less; 3) Build teamwork; 4) Decrease employee turnover; and 5) Improve everyone’s morale — including the leader’s!
Audience: Business executives and managers, nonprofit organization leaders, academic leaders, political and community leaders, clergy, business students, and everyone who needs to be a more effective leaders.
About the Author: Jack Myrick is president and founder of Management Solutions, a management training company, as well as head of Myrick Enterprises, a restaurant development group.
