10 Leadership Lessons from the 2500 Year Old Tao Te Ching


The Tao Te Ching is a Chinese text written over 2,500 years ago. This ancient work continues revealing modern messages every time I read it, and hopefully convey along to you. My first experience with the book was from classes at university where I paired a minor in philosophy with my major in computer science. An unusual combination that has served me well throughout life.

As you read through my presentation you’ll find that I’ve offered up my top 10 leadership lessons from the Tao Te Ching. I’ve started by offering some of my interpretations introducing the book, and I finish with a summary for how impressive it remains today.

Although the Tao Te Ching is 25 centuries old I expect you’ll feel as though it speaks to you.

As I have time I intend to develop this article offering additional commentary to my presentation.
