The underlying Applications of machiavelli is whether leadership can be defined by one particular style?
Are you an effective leader if you lead by example as compared to leading by delegating responsibility? Is leading by force more effective than leading by collaboration? Would Stalin have gained a sustainable following if he led through democratic processes as compared to embracing Socialism as he murdered millions of his followers in order to accomplish his self-imposed goals?
In my opinion, I believe a leader can only be successful in the long term if his style matches the goals and objectives that are culturally acceptable by his followers. As an example, I do not believe that a Machiavellian style of leadership from the President of the United States of America could be successful given our cultural norms and expectation of freedom and the pursuit of happiness.
Machiavelli believes that rulers should prefer to be feared rather than loved.
The true question is what type of methods should our leaders utilize today. Nixon was recorded saying that he wanted his officials to only invite well-esteemed religious figures to his White House convention. Nixon tried to bring these services together to resolve the tension between the religious Democratic groups.
During the Watergate scandalNixon attempted to rob, destroy, lie and cheat in order to advance on his opponents and cover up for his flaws. Nixon tried to do anything possible to be successful but his actions had an extremely negative affect and resulted in his resign and reputation as one of the worst and most corrupt presidents in the history of the United States.
The Presidential term of George W.
However, his terms mainly focused on his personal agenda and he was not able to build a consensus around larger issues, like the Iraqi invasion and Hurricane Katrina.
Bush was perceived to be more focused on preserving his power than trying to help the nation. He was ultimately a great politician that maintained his power, but was incapable of solving the larger-scale and global issues. I agree that some politicians, not necessarily presidents, will utilize the techniques of Machiavelli and be successful.
But, the ultimate success of a leader is defined his ability to introduce sustainable change, motivate other to go beyond their own abilities. In a Democratic country, presidential success is reliant on how the population views.
And therefore, presidents who are promoted by their self-interest and try to resolve issues by whatever means necessary are ultimately unsuccessful in American politics.Aug 02, · Tweet with a location.
