Leadership In Action (Corporate L&D)
ARE YOU AN EXECUTIVE LOOKING TO REINVIGORATE YOUR PROFESSIONAL LEADERSHIP ROLE?
Some are born great,
Some achieve greatness,
And some have greatness
Thrust upon them.
Twelfth Night, Act 2, Scene 5
DEVELOP YOUR LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Shakespeare’s works and working practice provide leadership insights in a number of ways — both subtle and overt.
He provided thought leadership through his words to influence an autocratic and often hostile court.
He influenced mass public opinion through the only mass medium of the day.
He was a savvy businessman who made a substantial living from his craft.
His characters were leaders — the words he gave them emphasised that leadership and cemented their place in history.
This practical, on-your-feet program also incorporates techniques commonly drawn from the rehearsal room and on stage. Throughout the day you’ll learn to develop your own personal leadership style, enabling you to:
— Understand the attributes of leadership;
— Present with confidence;
— Tell a compelling story;
— Inspire your colleagues;
— Apply leadership lessons from Shakespeare to different and difficult situations.
