Raising A Leader From Past To Present
- If it hadn’t been for Aristo, could Alexander the Great have put his stamp on history in this way? Similar to this, if it hadn’t been for KülTigin, could Bilge Kaan have put his stamp on history; if it hadn’t been for Ak Şemseddin, could Fatih the Conqueror have put his stamp on history; and if it hadn’t been for Namık Kemal and Ziya Gökalp, could Ataturk have put his stamp on history in this way? By looking at the leaders in the aforementioned examples, we can understand how important the leadership training is. In history, leadership training was either provided by tutors who were like a coach, or by institutions that had the quality of a systematic school. In this article, Kutadgu Bilig’s sense of education and, the structure and learning content of the Enderun (Special School in the Ottoman Palace), will be analyzed. By focusing on today’s training models, it has been analyzed how leadership training was conducted in the past, and how it is being conducted in our day; and it will be emphasized how a leadership training should be, by taking these two relationships into consideration.
