Nancy Crawley Prince/Tao Paper Both books, Tao and Prince, make some very good points that are great to apply to everyday leadership situations. Each text varies greatly and is almost complete opposite of one another. Machiavelli’s Prince is more about leadership with power and cruelty to get people to follow you. On the other hand, Tao is more about unity, leading through example, and selflessness. The main question these books try to answer is how to be a good leader. Prince and Tao are two very good books for someone to read who wants to learn some aspects that m make a good leader. Each book gives some similar advice but in different wording. For example, Tao and Prince both speak on the matter of how a leader should show great care for their followers, and in return they will be loved and respected. This type of advice is all seen in the business world today. If a CEO of a particular company shows great interest in what his employees have to say and treat t hem with respect, then the employees are likely to respect her/him and work harder for the company. Within this link between Tao and Prince, we can see Covey’s habits two and five. We can compare this to habit two, because it is dealing with principals, values, and having the end in mind. The CEO of the company is displaying a set of good values because he is showing interest in the workers opinions. Also, he has the best interest of the company in mind so he is helping the company by being a great listener. Seeking first to understand then to be understood is also seen in this scenario, which is Covey’s habit five.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
