Raise Your Game: Leadership Lessons From Socrates

By Leaderonomics|03-02-2018 | 1 Min Read

In the ’13 Virtues’, Benjamin Franklin prescribed a list of actions we should follow if we wish to lead a principled life of meaning. The last of these virtues focuses on humility. To be really humble, Franklin encourages us to “imitate Jesus and Socrates”.

Leaderonomics CEO Roshan Thiran shares about how he understands Jesus and humility, but recently discovered that Socrates the philosopher also had much to say on leadership and life.
