In today's fast-paced world, the ancient wisdom of Chinese strategist and philosopher Zhu Ge Liang (诸葛亮) remains relevant and inspiring. His teachings on leadership, known as the Art of War: General Conduct (將器), provide a framework for becoming a compassionate, wise, and strategic leader. As a feng shui master, I've had the privilege of advising many clients on how to incorporate these principles into their daily lives.
The Seven Principles of Enlightened Leadership
Zhu Ge Liang's Art of War emphasizes the importance of the following qualities in a leader:
Compassionate, loyal to the country, well-versed in multiple fields, and practising justice and equality (仁爱忠诚,多才多艺,公正平等)
Prioritizing public service (公共服务为首要)
Proper conduct and etiquette in words and actions (言行得体)
Vigilance against crafty individuals to prevent disaster (防范狡猾之徒)
Possessing multiple strategies, bravery to make changes, and practicality (拥有多种策略,勇敢改变,务实)
Being a symbol of justice, courage, passion, and understanding (公正,勇敢,热情,理解)
Commitment to hard work, keeping promises, and good governance (努力,信守承诺,善治)
