Anil Behan runs a great site over at Orgdyne as well as the Orgdyne mailing list. Orgdyne is the place to go for discussion about the often hidden, unspoken and sometimes, ugly, dynamics in organisations.
Anil’s latest posting is an interview with Manfred Kets de Vries entitled What makes a leader great? published in Strategic Direction Vol. 20, Number 8, July/August 2004. In Anil’s words “It is a fascinating account of the leadership style of Alexander the Great”. Kets de Vries also looks at several
other modern leaders and anilyses their style by reference to Alexander the Great.
This is a must read for anyone truly interested in the nature of leadership in modern corporations.
