Sun Tzu on Leadership

As I migrate the information contained in the About Leadership tool of the Leadership Toolbox, I am amazed at how much information I have neglected on the WFLDP site. "What it Takes to be a Leader" on the Sonshi website was only one of many leadership nuggets on the site. Sonshi was founded in 1999 by Thomas Huynh as a "network of professionals from various disciplines joing together by a common interest: Sun Tzu's Art of War."

If you are a student of fire and leadership, you are acquainted with Sun Tzu's Art of War and his philosophys that were written over 2,000 years ago. The WFLDP through the Professional Reading Program encourages readers to peruse Gerald Michaelson's modern adapation titled Sun Tzu: The Art of War for Managers (50 Strategic Rules).

The Sonshi site has articles written by and interviews conducted with individuals from various walks of life. Leadership experts around the world come together at this site to discuss this leadership staple. If this isn't enough, a translated version of Sun Tzu The Art of War is available on the site.
