Power and how to keep it

As we watch North Korea, how does Kim Jong-un keep in power? Why is ISIS losing power? Why does Assad in Syria stay in power? How does Putin influence the world? As the American Election approaches, and we cringe at Donald Trump being (maybe) elected, maybe we need not be overly worried of its consequence. Watching this video enlightens us as we realize how difficult it is to keep power once gained.

Would this analysis also be applicable to a CEO? to an authoritarian parent? Just wondering ….
