In the concluding episode, I discuss Caesar's ascendency to total power and his (spoiler alert!) assassination.
Julius Caesar wraps up his conquest of Gaul and is forced to make the most crucial decision of his life.
In Gaul, Julius Caesar gives a master class on how to demonstrate leadership and cultivate trust when you are tasked with leading a new team in a new environment.
In the first episode on the life of Julius Caesar, I analyze his rise and some of the fundamental character attributes that made him great, analyze some of the ways Caesar was like Steve Jobs and Napoleon, and look at his political strategies.
A big thank you to my sources, the biggest of which were Julius Caesar by Philip Freeman and Caesar: Life of a Colossus by Adrian Goldsworthy.
In the second episode on the life of Vladimir Putin, I analyze his communication strategy, his vast wealth and why it doesn't matter, and the possibility that Putin orchestrated multiple false flag terrorist attacks within Russia.
Once again my main sources for this episode are "The New Tsar: The Rise and Reign of Vladimir Putin" by Steven Lee Myers and "The Man Without a Face: The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin" by Masha Gessen.
Vladimir Putin: Modern day czar, KGB man, billionaire, reformer, and (probably a) murderer. Putin is a compelling case study because he lacks the genius of a Napoleon or Steve Jobs, suggesting the possibility that anyone could achieve his lofty levels of success with the right combination of strategy and luck. In Part 1, we examine his rise to power. Check back next Tuesday for Part 2.
The second episode on Steve Jobs explores his comeback and extremely successful second act. Once again I look at his life, strategies, tactics, work habits, leadership style, and more.
Today we're talking about Steve Jobs, the innovator, businessman, and technologist who has arguably shaped our world in the 21st century more than any other. I explore his life, strategies, tactics, work habits, leadership style, and more.
Today we're talking about Napoleon Bonaparte, the French general, reformer, innovator, and emperor. I explore his life, strategies, tactics, work habits, leadership style, and more.
