Three Kingdoms’ Leadership in Today’s Context
Do you wish to take your leadership skills to the next level? The Three Kingdoms Era was a key point in China’s history, showcasing the battle of leadership and wits by great leaders of the time. In our 2-day course, Three Kingdoms’ Leadership in Today’s Context, we will share the history of the Three Kingdoms Era, and apply the teachings of great leaders of that era into our daily lives today.
The Three Kingdoms (三国) era was a period of turmoil and bloodshed for China, with frequent infighting between warlords plunging China into a perpetual state of chaos. However, the ravages of war bore witness to the emergence of heroes and great leaders aplenty, many of whom have been worshipped for generations ever since, for displaying unwavering loyalty, incredible bravery and tactical ingenuity in defending their land. The tripartite (三分为: 曹魏, 东吴, 蜀汉) struggle for hegemony over ancient China ultimately showcased a keenly contested battle of wits, wills and supreme leadership skills.
Within this 2-day workshop, participants will be able to approach the concept of leadership from the valuable insights gained from both the novels, Romance of the Three Kingdoms (三国演义) and the “Records of the Three Kingdoms’ (三国志). Participants will also understand the various leadership styles employed by the great leaders Cao Cao(曹操), Sun Quan(孙权), Liu Bei (刘备) and Zhuge Liang(诸葛亮), and complete a profiling exercise to see which leaders’ leadership style represents you the most.
