Lessons from Alpha Males in History

Some excepts from an article found in the website about key lessons that one can extract from different personalities who are considered as Alpha Males (top guns) in their respective fields. Very informative and enlightening thoughts that I cannot resist not blog.

1. In team building, do not tolerate mediocrity (on the management style of chef Gordon Ramsay)

2. Always come prepared (on Muhammad Ali's work ethic)

3. Embrace your superior skills and use them to elevate those around you (on Wilt Chamberlain's NBA championship anchored in teamwork amidst his dominance)

4. Personal convictions don't mean personal restrictions (on Hugh Hefner's putting his belief and convictions (regardless of how many are against it) into his advantage)

5. When you give your word, always deliver on it (on Douglas MacArthur's promise of going back to the Philippines)

6. Don't underestimate the power of presence (on John Wayne's iconic image as an ass-kicking , brash-talking cowboy)
