  1. This is fascinating and provokes many intriguing connections. Many of the practices you refer to – reflective diaries, evening recollection of the day, mindfulness – are now central in leadership development programmes around the world.

    Another common practice is that of personal ‘coaching’ in leadership roles. This is often compared (and contrasted) with therapy, but I wonder if there is an analogy to stoic practices that might be more helpful?

    1. An interesting connection indeed. There is also an increasing awareness of the need for ethical business ventures. Looking back to the ancients could help with that too.
