When I ask audiences to identify the greatest leaders in the history of the world, a few names always make the list.
- Martin Luther King, Jr.
- Abraham Lincoln
- Jesus Christ
After hearing these responses repeated over the years, I suddenly realized something. These leaders had one thing in common. None of them died natural deaths. They were all killed.
The audio file below is a recording of my keynote presentation to the Jobs Australia Conference in Hobart, Tasmania. The speech explores four powerful principles that we can learn from the lives and violent deaths of these great leaders.
