Shakespeare’s Lessons in Leadership? (English only)

Facilitator: Jane Everett – Intercultural Trainer

Shakespeare offers non-prescriptive advice and key insights into the workings of the human mind and human nature as well as practical techniques to motivate and inspire others around us. Inspired by the five practices of exemplary leadership as defined by Kouzes and Posner (The Leadership Challenge) this workshop explores some of the lessons that can be learnt in transformational leadership from Shakespeare. The 5 lessons from the full masterclass workshop are:  Challenge the Status Quo  Create a Compelling Vision  Enable Others to Act  Model the Way  Encourage the Heart. This ‘pilot’ workshop is designed for members only of SIETAR to stimulate, inform, experiment and entertain, and is eager and open to feedback and input to discover how such lessons could be made absolutely relevant to today’s professionals.
