Do As the Romans Do Not

3 REASONS WHY AN EMPIRE CAME CRASHING DOWN

(and how today’s CEOs can learn from it)

#1. Internal Conflict

Making an entire empire happy seems impossible. As the leader it can be draining. What if there’s a way you haven’t thought of? You’ll never know without immersing yourself in the wisdom of others with similar challenges.

#2. Wandering Values

As the empire evolves, so does its goals. The trick is to never let these goals interfere with, or take priority over a solid foundation of values. Having trusted peers as friends helps us keep sight of what matters most.

#3. Barbarian Tribes

Competition is slightly more civil these days. Regardless, it’s important to keep your spears sharp and stay aware of your surroundings. It’s easier to hear the rumblings of potential threats when you have alliances on the outside.

BUT WHAT IF THE EMPIRE HAD THE RIGHT SUPPORT?

Our CEO members find that with the backing of their peers, they evolve faster and achieve more together. Listen in to what they have to say.
