Event description

Description

"Unless rulers become philosophers, or philosophers become rulers, there will be no end to the troubles of mankind" (Plato, the Republic)

In the legendary myth of King Arthur, Excalibur was the magic sword that could only be pulled from the stone by the "true king".

Who is a true leader? What does it take to be a leader? Is a leader born or made?

Inspired by the teachings of classical philosophers such as Plato, Confucius and the Stoics, among others, New Acropolis is offering a new approach to leadership training. In this three day seminar for idealists we will study and practice the idea of transformative leadership and the connection between philosophy and leadership.

Whether you dream of being an influncer in the political world, or a visionary in the field of arts and science, this seminar will give you the mental foundations to become ethical, inspirational and effective leaders.
