There was no greater war leader and strategist than Chinese military general Sun Tzu. His philosophy on how to be a great leader and ensure you win in work, management, and life is summed up in these 33 pieces of advice. They can all be applied by you in your job when you go back to work next week:
A leader leads by example, not by force.
You have to believe in yourself.
Appear weak when you are strong, and strong when you are weak.
There’s no war before or since that evoked so many voices from the arts as did the first world war. Until then the great empires had shaped the world and the ruling classes were close to each other. There was a sense of order. Then came huge social, as well as artistic, change.
