* The ALKISTIS Method® as described in my book 'From Fear to Freedom' is a unique method, which integrates the ageless, time tested principles of Greek Philosophy as taught by Socrates, Plato, Aristotle and the School of Stoicism, with modern scientific, evidence-based techniques. It is aimed at creating authentic, effective leaders, who can take balanced, well informed decisions and gain the respect & loyalty of those whom they lead, whether it be a large corporation or themselves and their own lives. It is applicable to all professionals, from CEOs, to educators, entrepreneurs and more.
