Marcus Aurelius, beyond being an early Stoic, held the most powerful position in the world at the time as emperor of Rome. In this video, Ryan Holiday discusses what Marcus Aurelius can teach us about leadership. He wasn’t a natural born leader. He was reclusive and bookish by nature. He didn’t like telling people what to do. He had no interest in recognition. He had to spend his entire reign as Emperor at war without any prior military experience. Yet, as one contemporary put it, Marcus Aurelius “not only possessed all the other virtues but also was a better ruler than anyone else who had ever been emperor.”
