Judging Hereditary Leaders: The Mind of a Leader 1 (Enhanced DVD)
In the 24th chapter of The Prince, Niccolo Machiavelli talks about people who become authority figures through inheritance. Machiavelli believes that leaders who inherit power are held to a standard that is higher than those who battled for power. In this half hour program, experts talk about their views on people who inherit power verses those who work for it.
This video dives right into how hereditary leaders are judged and that many view them in a harsh light. Lars Hakanson is among the panelists and he believes that there is a good reason or the difference in judging. Some of the other topics that are covered by Katie Ford, Steven Hilton, Nicolas Winding Refn, and Marc Soustrot include joining a family business and using a family name to gain clout. This half hour video is part of the series, Mind of a Leader.
