Alexander the Great as a leadership model for the modern world? Dr. Lance Kurke brings to life the heroic exploits of this most extraordinary leader and derives from them clear and concise lessons for those who aspire to be today's effective leaders. Truly great leaders change the world around them. They instill in their followers a cohesive identity and clear purpose. They treat difficult problems as addressable opportunities. Whether it involves a historical figure or the modern business organization, the leadership process creates sustained meaning, shared interpretation, and joint action in the organization. This is what Dr. Kurke defines as the process of enactment. In his hands, enactment derives from four leadership processes: reframing problems, building alliances, establishing identity, and directing symbols. Taken together, these four processes create new realities. They influence the choice of priorities and partners and create unity through shared understanding of the importance of chosen actions.

The Wisdom of Alexander the Great is a superbly readable book that rewards its reader with thought-provoking lessons applicable to current business problems. It is written for the busy executive, manager, or military leader in that it is a collage of short self-contained stories that can be savored in small segments of valuable free time. All the stories are interrelated, and Dr. Kurke ties them into a neat bundle that, considered in its totality, is a complete and coherent process for leadership. In this book's conclusion, Dr. Kurke suggests that we should all have heroes and read about them--and learn to tell stories. Dr. Kurke has his own hero in Alexander the Great, and he certainly is a wonderful storyteller. Steven F. Goldstone Former Chairman and CEO, RJR Nabisco
