Leading Westeros: Leadership Lessons From ‘Game Of Thrones’ by Cameron Welter at Forbes on 9 April 2014

Note: If you have seen up to the end of Season 3, there are no spoilers in this article.  If you haven’t, read at your own peril!

There really aren’t any “nuggets” here – I just happen to like the HBO series ‘Game of Thrones’ and this article does a good job of summarizing the various leadership types.  Key thoughts include being sure that you stay aware of the changing environment, be careful of ruling with an iron fist, the potential division between doing what’s right for you and your followers, the impact of negative leadership on your organization, and the reluctance of some people taking on a leadership role (even when they’re in one).
