I’ve made it a hobby to analyze the leadership qualities of characters in various television shows and movies. I know, it’s a bit strange, but I just do it without thinking. Game of Thrones is a fascinating show to follow, full of complex characters and numerous factions with different cultures, leaders, and leadership styles. Over the past six seasons we have seen plenty of leaders rise and fall and make a LOT of mistakes across the lands of Westeros and Essos. It’s an intriguing study – even if it is a fictional universe – for people interested in leadership, and George R. R. Martin and the show’s writers paint fascinating portraits of people vying for the Iron Throne.
